This book examines the personalities and politics involved in the making of a film about the relationship between Unity Mitford and Hitler, set against the background of the Red Army Faction terror campaign in 1970s Germany. Almost thirty years after the film had to be abandoned following its leading actress's participation in a terrorist attack, the narrator sets out to uncover her true motives by exploring her relationships with her aristocratic English family, the German wunderkind film director, a charismatic Palestinian activist, her university boyfriend, a former Hollywood child star and an Auschwitz survivor turned high-powered pornographer. Unity paints a deeply disturbing picture of corruption and fanaticism in both Britain and Germany from the 1930s to the present day. Startlingly original in concept and treatment, this remarkable novel is a profound and provocative exploration of the nature of evil.
