Fischer has such a talent at portraying family dynamics. Having read all three of his books niw, I consider myself a fan.
The Black Eagle Inn, again portraying Germany's history, deals with the trials and tribulations of a country family who own a farm and inn. What is different about this book us that Fischer approaches the issues of foreigners in Germany post World War II and the acceptance of homosexuality in Germany.
As usual, Fischer approaches these subjects with poise and class.
