Product description

Book Description

"This Christina Stead masterpiece is a novel for our times. Set in the uneasy period between the wars, the story details the high world of finance and the intrigues in a merchant bank that ultimately collapses. Introduction by Alan Kohler."

Product Description

House of All Nations is Christina Stead’s 1938 gripping portrayal of financial world success. Set in an exclusive European bank in the heady days of the early thirties, Stead weaves a remarkable tale of greedy, devious and shady characters, all brought together by their love of money. The director of the bank, Jules Bertillon, leads these gamblers, crooks and prospectors on a treacherous journey navigating political and natural disasters, and using both to his advantage.
House of All Nations has never been more relevant, as Stead’s remarkable work speaks loudly about the modern markets.
