The Lives and Times of Bernardo Brown

Geoffrey Household

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Thriller / suspense

A story of suspense and narrow escapes from the acclaimed author of ROGUE MALE.

1920s' Eastern Europe. A place of post-war intrigue, crumbling monarchies and Russian refugees. A world fortified by ghettos, brothels, freak shows and cabarets. And within this melting pot of society, Bernardo Brown embarks on a journey across the continent, without passport or money, evading the police.

As Bernardo travels from the Basque Coast to Hungary, Romania, England and back to Spain, he employs wild and hilarious means to avoid detection. The reader is transported from one narrow escape to the next in this fine example of the English picaresque tradition.
