Here aging Wilhelm Petersen must fight to keep his hold on the commercial empire he has built with the aid of his beautiful and ruthless Oriental wife. Here his nephew, Johannes, after years of exile from Nazi oppression, must choose between the half-caste mistress who has taught him pleasure, and the wife and children coming to join him from Europe. Here Pauline, Wilhelms proud and fiery daughter, must gamble her happiness in a marriage to an American, hoping his passion for her will continue to dispel the spectre of racial prejudice.Around these central figures swarm a host of other superbly vivid figures - men and women, old and young, European and American, refugees from war-torn Europe, Siamese and Chinese.

They combine to create an unforgettable picture of two worlds in a single city: the self-contained, isolated world of the foreigners, and the complex, deeply rooted oriental world of the foreigners, and the complex, deeply rooted oriental world of those who both serve and mock them, are used by and use them.This is fiction to transport the reader into a realm of exotic adventure - and of universal human truths.

As one reviewer remarked: Once you have started it is almost impossible to put this book down. One regrets that it cant be read in one night.
