In these two stories, Peter Kaufman tells us about choices made in the pursuit of wealth during two tendentious cultural periods. DOMINO takes place, after a brief prologue, in Southern California toward the end of the Great Depression; RAZZIA is set in Algeria after the Great War. These are masterful, complex stories where there are those who survive and those who do not. These narratives contrast the means, the agendas and the motivations of the personalities involved as they struggle to achieve their goals. Watch for roll reversals which surprise and to some extent haunt both Henry and Henri.
