"New York, February 13, 2006. Kurt Altman, a young man living in New York, suffers a sudden and inexplicable attack of amnesia. Convinced of an imminent bombing attack, he flees the city, jumps on a train, and heads south, drawn there for reasons he can't understand. On a plane he meets Hannah Brown, a business psychologist and the daughter of an immigrant Jewish family. Powerful sexual attraction, combined with links to a German past, draw them together and before long Hannah is pulled into Kurt's precipitous search for his own identity. The search ends in Dresden, Tennessee, and an encounter with a stranger who holds the key to unlocking Kurt's memory." "Dresden, Tennessee tells the story of February 13, 1945, when incendiary bombs fell on Dresden, Germany, for three days and nights, reducing the medieval city to rubble. As the story unfolds we see how past and present can collide in a re-enactment of historical and private grief: can memories be passed from parents to children?"--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
