Summary
The devious world of international finance comes alive in Christina Stead's enthralling epic about a ruthless bank director in 1930s Paris Praised as "a work of extraordinary talent" by the New York Times, Christina Stead's ambitiously layered House of All Nations is an engrossing satire of wealth and manipulation. Set in an elite European bank in the 1930s, Stead's epic spans the interwar years of a money-hungry Paris. Jules Bertillon, the distrustful and unpredictable bank director, sees every national disaster-including war-as an opportunity for riches. Adored by his clients for his ability to rake in staggering profits, Bertillon leaves no opening wasted-even if it means dealing with unsavory speculators or ruthless gamblers while his clients suffer the consequences. A stunning page-turner, House of All Nations is as significant and resonant today as it was upon its publication in 1938
Summary
Set in Paris during the interwar period, this is a novel of the intrigues, swindles and manipulations of the world of international finance where gamblers, tax evaders and shady speculators, are all united by their love of money
