An evocative story set in present day New York City, Wales, Cornwall, Paris, Rome and Greece. Simon Van Booy explores love's labour and love's loss with masterful simplicity and in touching detail. His prose is spare, economical and evanescent. His characters are often unbearably lonely, vulnerable and private. Their realities are so full of memories that they seem transcendental and independent of time. Simon Van Booy's voice is reverent, haunting and profoundly humane.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
