In his début novel »Union Atlantic«, the New York writer portrays the responsible parties in their humanly, legally and structurally fragile banking system. In the novel, an unscrupulous banker meets a spiritually-minded teacher – these two represent the antipodes of the looming crisis which was unleashed after the bankruptcy of Lehmann Brothers.
