The Nazis and Soviets have invaded, conquered and partitioned Poland. Ed Rybowski, 21 year-old, Brooklyn-born Polish-American Jew, is wracked with guilt as he studies, safely, at Princeton among the wealthy sons of the American elite. To take his mind off the looming war, his only friend, Billy Randolph, the radical son of Virginias junior Senator, takes Saint Edon a road trip, first to Manhattan and Harlem night spots, then to Mad River, Vermont for skiing. Along the way, Rybowski discovers the dark secrets of his fathers past concealed in a box of letters stolen from his mothers New York apartment, and Randolph reveals his own dark secret that could threaten his familys political dynasty. Saint Ed is a poignant portrait of a doomed friendship reminiscent of Evelyn Waughs masterpiece Brideshead Revisited, but with the dialogue, density of historical detail and pace of an Alan Furst spy novel.
