Description: -- A girl, Emiko, plays in the river with her younger brother, who believes the plane on the horizon might scatter candy and toys across wartime Hiroshima.

-- A young woman, Sophie, arrives alone at a Quebec refugee camp, her family trapped in Eastern Europe.

-- Anton, a German emigre, bicycles daily past a billboard in Los Alamos on his way to work: Whose son will die in the last minute of the war?

With these three lives, from their beginnings to their culmination, Dennis Bock triangulates and humanizes all the import of the decision to develop and drop the atom bomb in order to conclude the Second World War. While the history is familiar to everyone, the character of these three -- their own histories and hopes and dreams and nightmares, their convictions and regrets -- turns what we thought we understood into something seen as if for the first time, in all its beautiful and terrible power.

Shot through with wisdom and every sort of passion, intricately plotted, its background vastly far-flung yet impeccably compact, The Ash Garden plays for the highest stakes imaginable and -- by matching bravery with humility -- triumphs absolutely.
