Sir Alfred Dreyfus, eminent headmaster of one of the greatest schools in England, is found guilty of a heinous crime. When Sam Temple, literary agent, visits Dreyfus in prison with a proposal for a book, he finds a man sunk beyond despair. Dreyfus begins, reluctantly, the appalling narrative of his betrayal; as he proceeds, he must also confront his own guilt for a lifetime’s denial of his Jewish origins.
Bernice Rubens has created a character of profound and moving humanity; in placing him at the end of our century, she makes his story a personal tragedy resonating with historical tragedy, bound in with the fate of six million others.
