Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Fiction), by Olivia
Andre Aciman has a way of bottling the essence of summer. With scenes straight out of classic Italian cinema, the book melts into the Amalfi Coast for moments shot through with sunlight. Like Aciman's other works, The Gentleman from Peru is both a sentimental and sensual read - with sentences that linger on the brain. Exploring notions of love and missed chances; right person, wrong time; past lives and human connection. Aciman captures the feeling of a fated love that exists outside of time and endures for multiple lifetimes. Slip this novella into your summer carryon - I promise you it's worth its weight in gold!
While their boat is being repaired, they can't help but observe the daily routine of a fellow hotel guest - a mysterious, white-bearded stranger who sits on the veranda each night and smokes one cigarette, sometimes two.
