Summary

The twenty-first book in the dramatic and intriguing story about the colonisation of Australia: a country made of blood, passion, and dreams.
 
The fires of nationalism are being kindled across the continent – especially in the hearts of the young.
 
The children of The Seafarers and The Mariners are growing up in a young country only just coming to nationhood. Some cry for unity while others raise the spectre of race hatred and violence. It is hard to see how these young Australians could ever realise their dream of one free and mighty land.

    Queen Victoria and Prince Albert had five daughters. Four of them were regal, genteel, and everything a princess should be. But one was rebellious, scandalous, and untamed. At court, Princess Louise—later the Duchess of Argyll—was the “Wild One.”  
     
    Proud and impetuous, Louise fought the constraints placed on her, dreamed of becoming an artist, and broke with a three-hundred-year-old tradition by marrying outside of the privileged circle of European royals. Some said she wed for love. Others whispered of a scandal covered up by the Crown.  
     
    It will take a handsome American, recruited by the queen's elite Secret Service, to discover the truth. Stephen Byrne—code named The Raven—has vowed to protect the royal family from violent Irish radicals. Yet he tempts Louise with a forbidden love that could prove just as dangerous.

    A penetrating study of ordinary people resisting the Nazi occupation—and, true to its title, a dark comedy of wartime manners—Comedy in a Minor Key tells the story of Wim and Marie, a Dutch couple who first hide a Jew they know as Nico, then must dispose of his body when he dies of pneumonia. This novella, first published in 1947 and now translated into English for the first time, shows Hans Keilson at his best: deeply ironic, penetrating, sympathetic, and brilliantly modern, an heir to Joseph Roth and Franz Kafka. In 2008, when Keilson received Germany's prestigious Welt Literature Prize, the citation praised his work for exploring "the destructive impulse at work in the twentieth century, down to its deepest psychological and spiritual ramifications."A Macmillan Audio production.
