Told in the alternating voices of a family who moves from London to New York at the end of the Second World War, Nicholas Delbanco's memoiristic novel is a moving story about how a family of immigrants come to terms with life in America.

How does a German Jewish family from London blend a past filled with ancestral homes in Germany, relatives fleeing the Nazi regime, and an intellectual life in London with the strange shores of America where they emigrate in order to take advantage of the land of opportunity? How can one balance the romanticism of a native land with a desire to fit in to the new? How can one realize what is lost, and what is gained in the journey from England to America?

These are the questions that lie at the heart of "What Remains", a memoiristic novel imbued with both the personal experience and the considerable talent of one of America's finest writers.
