 Synopsis  Reviews  Information
First published in 1927, the book was one of the twentieth century's first massive bestsellers, selling over 15 million copies worldwide. It's the story of two tremendously charming characters who embark on a glamorous adventure on the Orient Express - and find themselves on a thrilling ride across Europe and into the just-barely unveiled territories of psychoanalysis and revolutionary socialism. Gerard Seliman -technically, a Prince - is so discouraged by the demise of his marriage that he flees to London to become the personal assistant of a glamorous member of the British peerage, Lady Diana Wyndham.
