Summary (From the publisher):

Efraim's Book is the sophisticated, offbeat novel about the peculiar society of post-World-War-II Berlin. Its hero George Efraim is a Jewish reporter who fought for the British on the Italian front and lost both parents to Auschwitz. He returns home to Berlin in 1962 for the first time since the war to investigate the wartime disappearance of his editor's daughter, only to begin writing a novel, which helps him "to embark on a certain arrangement of signs with the help of which I hope to chart my position."
