Summary
Someone is watching over Sofie Kurtz. As she evolves, from teenage war orphan, to political activist, to militant dissident, Sofie is only vaguely aware of her benefactor's hand in the events that compose her life story. There are coincidences and strange encounters that make her question the degree of control she has over her life, which lead to a lingering paranoia. A reclusive millionaire invites an unnamed author to his mansion. If he accepts the invitation he must be willing to listen carefully to his story, then leave without ceremony and record it in writing. The published book is a guarantee of fame to the author. The only stipulation is that the book not be published until after his death. His is a story of the arrogance of limitless power, of the apparent ineluctability of the status quo, and of a ruinous, sovereign obsession with a young girl he chanced to meet during the war--a young girl named Sofie Kurtz
