    Lev Perlmutter, an assimilated, cultured German Jew, enlists to fight in World War I, leaving behind his gentile wife, Josephine, and their children, Franz and Vicki. Moving between Lev's and Josephine's viewpoints, part one of the novel focuses on Lev's experiences on the Eastern Front - both in war and in love - which render his life at home a pale aftermath by comparison. Part two picks up in Berlin in 1927-1928: the Perlmutter children, now young adults, grapple with their own questions.
