Overview

Gregarious and adventurous, Count Helmuth Holk is delighted to be called away from his solemn and pious wife to the distant court of a Danish princess. Swept up in the romance of his new surroundings, he does not realize that everyone there is not what they seem—a fact that causes him to make a decision that has fatal consequences. A tragicomic novel of a failing marriage and modern sexual politics, No Way Back is full of the irony, elegance, and masterly dialogue for which Theodor Fontane is acclaimed.
