Count Luna is the story of Alexander Jessiersky, an Austrian aristocrat who presides over a Viennese transport company. As World War II opens, Jessiersky, who detests the Nazis, is asked by his board of directors to acquiesce in the confiscation of a neighboring parcel of land in order to accommodate expanded war business. Jessiersky refuses to go along, but because of inattention or laziness his board carries out the land seizure behind his back.
Great literature, great narrator

Expect the unexpected
This is high class literature, a story so intelligent & different, written in such a fascinating & elegant style that is impossible to come across in modern day literature. This author was a true genius.
