UNITY

MICHAEL ARDITTI    Book Number: 90611    Product format: Paperback

A novel which examines the personalities and politics involved in the making of a film about the relationship between Unity Mitford and Hitler, set against the background of the Red Army Faction terror campaign in 1970s Germany. Almost 30 years after the film had to be abandoned following its leading actress's participation in a terrorist attack, the narrator sets out to uncover her true motives. He does that by exploring her relationships with her aristocratic English family, the German wunderkind director, a charismatic Palestinian activist, her university boyfriend, a former Hollywood child star and an Auschwitz survivor turned high-powered pornographer. The novel paints a deeply disturbing picture of corruption and fanaticism in both Britain and Germany from the 1930s to the present day and startlingly original in concept and treatment studying a profound and provocative exploration of the nature of evil. 379pp, paperback with cast of real characters including the Mitford sisters Jessica and Unity, Diana Guinness, Sir Oswald Mosley, the Goebbels, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun.
