Through a lens clearly,
This review is from: The Shoreline and the Sea (Kindle Edition)
This is an enthralling and enjoyable book, an engrossing read that engaged me throughout.
The intriguing narrative centres on a photographer whose girlfriend goes missing whilst they are on holiday in Italy. The man's subsequent enforced sojourn in a fishing village provides a rich array of characters and events in a form that blends dreams and seemingly magical elements into the atmosphere of mystery - to suggest that his search is as much for himself as for the missing girl.
This is an exceptionally fine piece of writing - I relished the luminous style and pure literary skill. It is finely honed, carefully structured, richly described and keenly observed, full of precise visual evocation and some striking set pieces. The author's ability to evoke a photographer's visual perception and aesthetic language could hardly be equalled.
