FROM THE PUBLISHER-THE POLYGLOTS, Gerhardie's comic masterpiece, is the unforgettable tale of an eccentric Belgian family living in the Far East through the uncertain years after the First World War and the Russian Revolution. The tale is recounted by their dryly conceited young English relative Captain Georges Hamlet Alexander Diabologh, who comes to stay with them during his military mission to the East. Filled with a host of bizarre characters-depressives, obsessives, paranoiacs, sex maniacs, hypochondriacs-Gerhardie paints a wonderfully absurd and directionless world where the comic and tragic are irrevocably entwined.
