As the Third Reich spread across Europe, hundreds of thousands fled the ****** regime. The story of those who escaped to the Americas is fairly well known, but in FAREWELL, SHANGHAI, Angel Wagenstein tells the story of those who ended up in Shanghai. The large cast of characters in this fascinating sprawl of a novel includes a Jewish violinist, a homosexual Hungarian drug addict, a high-class hooker, and others who did not fit into the ******' idealized world and were forced to make a home in the teeming Chinese city, which was occupied by the Japanese Axis forces.
