"Intimate and scholarly...Patient readers will be rewarded. An encyclopedic and epistolary family history, a eulogy for pre-Reich Vienna and an ode to midcentury modernism." -- Kirkus Reviews "This jewel should not be called a book but a museum." -- Will Semler, author (Melbourne, Australia) "One of the more uplifting accounts of European emigre life that I have read in a long time...It will touch you to tears right away, regardless of how many accounts of similar fates you believe to have studied and understood...What a book!" -- Volker M. Welter, author and architectural historian "An invaluable addition to the literature on the birth of modern Aspen." --Stewart Oksenhorn, The Aspen Times Charles Paterson (born Karl Schanzer) was only nine years old when the Nazis invaded Austria and his father, Stefan, fled with his children to avoid persecution. To assure their continued safety, the children were baptized and adopted by the Paterson family in Australia while Stefan made a harrowing escape through occupied France. It would be eight years, after much sorrow and loss, before Charles and his sister would reunite with Stefan in the United States. After Charles and Stefan settle in Aspen, Colorado, amidst the snow-capped peaks that remind them of the Austrian Alps, Stefan becomes a high school teacher known for his humor and adventure stories while Charles teaches skiing, serves as a Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice, and then builds his thesis project, the The Boomerang ski lodge. Charles lives with Stefan at The Boomerang and, as Aspen grows into a world-class ski resort, spends fifty years welcoming thousands of people to the town with Austrian warmth and gemutlichkeit. Based on archival documents and letters, together with the authors' personal reflections, Escape Home is a family memoir and a meditation on the domestic qualities of architecture, where the bonds of culture and family prove to be the true foundation for rebuilding meaningful lives and finding both security and freedom.
