Another Green World ponders the specter, perhaps only imagined, of a golden age lost. A challenging novel whose take on World War II is closer to the surreal dystopia of Thomas Pynchon than to the patriotic valor of Herman Wouk.

Every feature was exaggerated. The riverbeds were gouged from sheer rock like battle scars. On all sides the Tatry Mountains climbed at a pitch that seemed geologically implausible, shooting upward to peaks that might have been honed by a storm-god's ax. Life clung precariously to the land here: sand-colored wisps where grasses had waved in summer; dark holds of spruce whose ragged tips imitated the mountaintops; more rarely, stripped-down blackened stalks.

An intriguing story populated by Grant's typically well-developed characters, though it is, in a way, too "real world". It lacks the quirky view of reality that the author brings to his other works, such as Saraband in Lost Time, Rumors of Spring, Kaspian Lost, Tex and Molly in the Afterlife, and so forth. As such, it is not as fun to read, though still good.

You can tell that Grant did a lot of research for this book... like always. It's very well written, and I love Grant's insightful style. The book switches between WWII Europe, and an earlier time when the characters (Americans)were younger and gallivanting through the Old World. If you area fan of Grant, don't leave this one out. If you are just starting out reading his books, also pick up "Views from the oldest house" and "Rumors of Spring," or even "through the heart." Enjoy!

In 1929, four young Americans journey to an international youth conference in Weimar Germany which promises the dawning of a new era. Here they forge friendships with their European counterparts, relationships which become immersed in the political and racist currents that will plunge the world into chaos. Fifteen years later, two of them, now back in America, are summoned by another who has become a legendary member of the Polish resistance. He is seeking to hand over critical evidence concerning the Final Solution. This launches the childhood friends on a mission to the partisan dominated wilds of central Europe, where they must confront the truth about themselves and the tortured world they have inherited.

Far from a quick read, this is an ambitious book which mixes myth with reality, youthful idealism with the horrors of war. It is told in meticulous detail, with frequent flights into the ideologies of the times. The author's prose is elaborate, given to lush descriptions, and a myriad of historical and literary references. His characters are remarkably introspective. Overall, the sheer scope of the work is impressive, especially in its illumination of some seldom examined facets of prewar Germany and wartime backwaters of Eastern Europe.
