It isn't all that focused, but in essence it is a really long, interesting discussion of how people think about the past, study the past, Full disclosure here: I skimmed the hell out of this book because I checked it out of the Smith college library in, like, June, and then forgot about it for months of summertime, until I finally checked.
It's a novel where you root for dicey characters, but ultimately not for dicey ends. Many noirs have a core of morality at the center (think of Sam Spade, unprincipled except on the issue of actually concealing murder). The Past Is a Foreign Country is just a little more rhetorically sanguine about its morals than most. Carofiglio, Gianrico. The Past Is a Foreign Country.

The past as it exists for all of us is history synthesised by the imagination, and fixed into a picture by something that amounts to fiction', wrote Butterfield. The historical novel fulfilled two needs. In what purports to be fiction, the passion for authenticity perverts the tale by larding it with painstakingly genuine detail.

She is not only interested in the past itself, but also its persistence, and why the Classics are so central to Western imagination.
