Summary of No Way Back Summary of No Way Back Reviews for No Way Back An Excerpt from No Way Back
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.
