Black and White Keys tells the story of Andrew Goderich, failed academic and unemployed philosopher, and of his crisis and rebirth through hardship and service. At a loose end at the outbreak of war in an Ottawa electric with activity, he is galvanized into a purposefulness as a result of an unexpected meeting with representatives of the RCMP, the Department of External Affairs, and Canadian Jewry, who make him an offer he can't refuse.
