Politics & government

Remarkable second novel by the author of the highly-praised and controversial Politics
Haffner is charming, morally suspect, sexually omnivorous, vain. There are so many stories of Haffner: but this, the most secret, is the greatest of them all. \nIn a forgotten spa town snug in the Alps, the 78-year-old Haffner is seeking a cure, redress, more women; and ignoring the will of his late wife. He is there to reclaim her villa, lost during the war, which Haffner will discover he would like very much to own. \nHarried by his family, pursued by his women, menaced by bureaucrats, negotiating with the mafia, riven by his memory of the dead and of the missing, Haffner tries to orchestrate his final escape.
