In the midst of his deepest personal crisis, Holocaust historian Toto meets the French research assistant Zazie, a Jewish woman with a finely honed abhorrence for all things Germanic. Her eccentric approach turns Toto’s private and professional life on its head, until nothing is left of it – apart from the horror and beauty of an impossible romance.
An irresistibly charming story marked by absurd humour and underlying melancholy.
