Descriere

A world on the brink of catastrophe. A two-thousand-year-old mystery. A lost gospel.

A young man flees the drudgery of shopkeeping in Tsarist Russia to make a new life among the bohemians and revolutionaries of nineteenth-century Paris. Beginning a treacherous journey through a world of spies and double-cross, propaganda, lost love, and anti-Semitism, he enters a modern world where lies have the power of truth.

Based on real events, The Secret Books is at once a page-turning adventure and an examination of the stories that humans are willing to kill and to die for.Ingenious, stylish, at once sardonic and accommodating, The Secret Books is a meditation on our abiding need for stories, which itself has a gloriously entertaining story to tell. (John Banville)
