    Seven stories of modern men and women uneasily suspended between the desire for love and the impulse toward flight: a boy's fascination with an eerily erotic painting gradually leads him into the labyrinthof his family's secrets; the friendship beween an idealistic young man from West Berlin and an upwardly mobile couple from the East is challenged by revelations about the past following the collapse of Communism; a philanderer, acrobatically juggling one wife and two mistresses (all apparently quite happy), begins to crack under the weight of his abundance. From the author of The Reader. 308p.

    The six essays that make up this compelling book view the long shadow of past guilt both as a uniquely German experience and as a global one. Bernhard Schlink explores the phenomenon of guilt and how it attaches to a whole society, not just to individual perpetrators. He considers how to use the lesson of history to motivate individual moral behavior, how to reconcile a guilt-laden past, how the role of law functions in this process, and how the theme of guilt influences his own fiction. Based on the Weidenfeld Lectures he delivered at Oxford University, Guilt About the Past is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand how events of the past can affect a nation's future. Written in Bernhard Schlink's eloquent but accessible style, it taps in to worldwide interest in the aftermath of war and how to forgive and reconcile the various legacies of the past.

    'Homecoming' is the much-anticipated novel from bestselling author Bernhard Schlink, author of 'The Reader.' Peter Debauer grew up in the shadow of World War II, and of his father, a victim of that war. As an adult, Peter begins to question his mother's version of history, and he sets out to find the truth about his father for himself. From Europe to New York City, Peter follows clues that tell a story of a man with many identities, a man who is running from something. Peter works in New York under an assumed identity, watching a celebrated Columbia professor who might just be the man he's searching for. Meanwhile, Peter must learn important lessons about life, love, and forgiveness.
