With this debut, Justin Go interweaves a tale of star-crossed lovers during the Great War with the present-day quest of a young man desperately chasing across Europe to find proof that he’s the rightful heir to a vast fortune. One of the most talked-about first novels in years — already translated into twenty languages — The Steady Running of the Hour captures the spirit of early 20th century England in a story that is both heartfelt and haunting.
