Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bernhard Schlink brings to these seven superbly crafted stories the same sleek concision and moral acuity that made The Reader an international bestseller. His characters-men with importunate appetites and unfortunate habits of deception-are uneasily suspended between the desire for love and the impulse toward flight.

A young boy's fascination with an eerily erotic painting gradually leads him into the labyrinth of his family's secrets. The friendship between a West Berliner and an idealistic young couple from the East founders amid the prosperity and revelations that follow the collapse of communism. An acrobatic philanderer (one wife and two mistresses, all apparently quite happy) begins to crack under the weight of his abundance. By turns brooding and comic, and filled with the suspense that comes from the inexorable unfolding of character, Flights of Love is nothing less than masterful

Synopsis:

A collection of seven stories all about love - why people are drawn to it and why some run away. The author in turns shows us love as desire, love as confusion, love as a quick affair, love as a drastic life-changing rebellion, love as a force of habit, love as self-betrayal.

Synopsis:

A collection of short stories on the subject of love, from the author of the trans-European bestseller, "The Reader". A "Sunday Times" bestseller in hardback, this collection shows Schlink's gift for characterisation and his adeptness at portraying the machinations of human relationships. "...will delight and surprise Schlink's admirers while converting his critics. It has humour, lightness of touch, beguiling candour and subtle irony" "Irish Times".
