5.0 out of 5 stars Complex, multifacetd, brilliantly written, informative on Lituania and contemporary British upper-class radiacal chic, 21 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Between Each Breath (Hardcover)
I was getting annoyed at the beginning both by the apparent incongruence of the prologue and then by the lengthy description of an idle class of willing artists, mature snobs, and a young resolute but inconsistent radical militant of her own personal cause, Milly, the would be mother of her lost child and of all the children of the world, except for her husband's one!

As narration progesses, you find out that there is much more to it than just a frustrated composer who has an occasional story with an acquaintance on one of his business trips abroad. The protagonist is a social climber, and he thinks he is satisfied with it. In fact he is not. A series of events brings him back closer to his real buried self, he comes to terms with his relation to his mother, gets back to his father with humility and humanity, finds out about that fatherhood he had not accomplished,overwhelmed as he is by his wife's obsessive sense of motherhood.
When the composer gets back to his inner self, gets in touch with his deepest truest feelings, his creativity reveals itself, his music will flourish again and, above all, his most significant creation, his child, helps him find a renovated and more sensible meaning of life.
