This novel, while sparsely written and subdued in outward emotion, boils with suppressed emotion. The conversation that takes up 70% of the novel is brilliant. I have given this book as a gift on 5 separate occasions, and my friends have all praised it highly too. It is a true shame that Marai's work is not better known. Though written 70 years ago, this book, by far, was the best book of the last decade.
