House of Meetings is about one such liaison. It is a triangular romance: two brothers fall in love with the same girl, a 19-year-old Jewess, in Moscow, which is poised for massacre in the gap between the war and the death of Stalin. Both brothers are arrested, and their rivalry slowly complicates itself over a decade in the slave camp above the Arctic Circle.

Martin Amis at the height of his powers; wonderous
Martin Amis at the height of his powers, pounding wonderous patterns depicting love and familial solidarity in amongst the weave of wholesale loss, despair and suffering in Stalin's post-war forced labor camps. A father's memoir written for a beloved daughter, where the truth is laid bare, revealing the darkest elements of a quote dark life in amongst heartfelt appreciation, and the bonds of love.
