Summary Follows two parallel stories. This first follows the youthful exploits and gradual maturing of an ambitious young man before the war during the German occupation when, in love and stupidity rather than opportunism, he finds himself on the side of occupying power. The second story, interlinked with the first, concerns only a short period in his later life when, after years in prison, he seeks peace and solitude in an abandoned German village whose inhabitants were expelled after the war. His peace is only briefly disturbed by the arrival of a working-class woman. Her youth and vitality bring back memories of his amorous adventures as a young man.
