Ravic is a German doctor and refugee living in Paris in 1939. Despite a law banning him from performing surgery, he has been treating some of the city's most elite citizens for two years on the behalf of two less-than-skillful French physicians. Forbidden to return to his own country and dodging the everyday dangers of jail and deportation, Ravic manages to hang on, all the while searching for the Nazi who tortured him back in Germany. And though he's given up on the possibility of love, life has a curious way of taking a turn for the romantic, even during the worst of times.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A great writer…Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.” New York Times Book Review
“It’s amazing to hear a novel read in the tone of the era about which it was written—shadowy and haltingly, as if an enemy might be listening. Ralph Cosham illuminates Remarque’s masterpiece…He projects the sounds and the threats of the imminent war with his sophisticated reading. An excellent production.” AudioFile
“Cosham’s reading is outstanding. His voice runs the full gamut of emotions as Ravic falls in love; faces life-and-death situations in the operating room, often repairing botched abortions; and contemplates the possibility of revenge for the torture he endured at the hands of the Gestapo.”  Kliatt
