Thomas Nesbitt is a divorced American writer in the midst of a rueful middle age. Living a very private life in Maine, in touch only with his daughter and still trying to reconcile himself to the end of a long marriage that he knew was flawed from the outset, his solitude is disrupted by the arrival, one wintry morning, of a box that is postmarked Germany. The return address on the box unsettles him completely. For it is the name of the woman with whom he had an intense love affair twenty-six years ago in Berlin - at a time when the city was cleaved in two, and personal and political allegiances were frequently haunted by the deep shadows of the Cold War. Thomas begins to grapple with a past he has never discussed with anyone, and relives those months when he discovered, for the first and only time in his life, the full, extraordinary force of true love. Brilliantly gripping, The Moment is an atmospherically dense, ethically tangled tale of romantic certainty and conflicting loyalties, all set amidst a stunningly rendered portrait of Berlin in the final dark years before The Wall came down.
