On the face of it, Winston Churchill and Charlie Chaplin two icons
of the twentieth century couldn t be more different. One is the
grand statesman whose resolve led a nation in the struggle against
Nazi Germany, the other the world-famous actor and comedian behind
"The Great Dictator," whose owns roots were in poverty and
hardship. But in this moving novel, they are bound by a dark
secret: both suffer from depression. When a chance encounter
reveals what they share, an unusual and unlikely friendship ensues.
A series of therapeutic meetings across the world, in Germany,
England, and America, sees each become the other s confidant as
they talk of their black dog days. With the eye of a masterfully
subtle narrator, Michael Kohlmeier imagines a startling friendship
of unique understanding between this extraordinary pair: a
friendship of the twentieth century between art and politics, humor
and seriousness, but which at heart remains an understanding
between two men the poor tramp and the grand statesman who bring
together the history of the century.
