Exiles in the Garden by Ward Just

Exiles in the GardenExiles in the Garden by Ward Just
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another quiet, beautifully written tale of "moral ambiguity" from Ward Just about life and politics in the nation's capital with forays to Eastern Europe through several characters.  While not as suspenseful as others of the author's books, I found the book compelling as the aging photographer protagonist contemplates his life and his accomplishments.  Equally interesting are the well-drawn characters of his ex-wife and her father, a Czech dissident soldier who appears late in the story but captivates the characters and the reader.
