There are many pleasures in this book: sex, travel, philosophy, art history. Benderson's louche tale is woven through a closely observed study of Romania, politically, historically and sociologically, the end of his mother's life, and the love affair between Romania's interbellum King Carol II and his Jewish mistress Magda Lupescu.
