Originally published in 1961, this shrewd, smartly written novel follows two American men traveling in Europe. Though both have struck out for the same continent, each man's methods of and motives for travel lead him to have a very different experience. Underlying it all is the premise that ""Europe"" can be a refiner's fire, deeply affecting a person's character. ""Europe"" represents a crucial step in Stern's development as a writer and stands as a witty, sharp point of entry into his writings.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Made out of the joy of language, witty and always entertaining, it is a beautifully
contrived artifact." --Anthony Burgess


"I like Europe even better than Golk. Baggish is a worthy descendant of Chichikov, and I hope will be around as long." --Flannery O'Connor

"Mr. Stern's comic vision lights up a venal world that his readers will be able to recognize even if they have never gotten past the Statue of Liberty."

--New York Times
