For those of us who yearn for simpler times, this book reminds us how difficult they were and provides an accurate picture of life a century and more ago.

    From a background of ease and comfort, from a time and place where life still makes some kind of sense, Anna Blume embarks on a search for her missing brother. Soon she finds herself trapped in a city whose consciousness is obsessed with last things: with the means and manner of death. In this culture of doom, the masses are homeless, theft has ceased to be a crime.
