Summary
"Ruth Becker, defiant and cantankerous, is living out her days in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. She has made an uneasy peace with the ghosts of her past - and a part of history that has been all but forgotten. Another lifetime away, it's 1939 and the world is going to war. Ernst Toller, self-doubting revolutionary and poet, sits in a New York hotel room settling up the account of his life. When Toller's story arrives on Ruth's doorstep their shared past slips under her defences, and she's right back among them - those friends who predicted the brutality of the Nazis and gave everything they had to stop them. Those who were tested - and in some cases found wanting - in the face of hatred, of art, of love, and of history." -- Book cover
Summary
German dissident writer Ernst Toller, his friend and lover, Dora Fabian, and Dora's younger cousin Ruth Becker (in real life, Ruth Blatt, whom Funder would befriend decades later), start a resistance movement inside Germany against Hitler's Nazi dictatorship, just as he and his fellow Nazis are consolidating their power, violently wiping away the last remaining vestiges of the democratic Weimar Republic.
