(From the publisher):
Four members of a German family are reunited by chance in the decaying beauty of post war Rome: a composer, Siegfried; his estranged father, Friedrich, a burgomaster and ex-Naxi administrator; his uncle Judejahn, a former SS general; and Judejahn's renegade son, Adolf, who is preparing himself for the Catholic priesthood. The four men recount their separate, often chilling, histories. Individually representing music, bureaucracy, arms and religion, together they personify the German soul.
