Each essay charts some experience or remembrance of the past through the sieve of Tony Judts prodigious mind. His youthful love of a particular London bus route evolves into a reflection on public civility and interwar urban planning.

Memories of the 1968 student riots of Paris meander through the divergent sex politics of Europe, before concluding that his generation was a revolutionary generation, but missed the revolution. A series of road trips across America lead not just to an appreciation of American history, but to an eventual acquisition of citizenship. Foods and trains and long-lost smells all compete for Judt s attention- but for us, he has forged his reflections into an elegant arc of analysis.

All as simply and beautifully arranged as a Swiss chalet—a reassuring refuge deep in the mountains of memory.
