Publisher Comments:

One of the most widely admired writers of our time returns us to the captivating play and narrative allure of his previous novels-G. and To the Wedding among them-with a shimmering fiction drawn from chapters of his own life.One hot afternoon in Lisbon, the narrator finds his long-dead mother seated on a park bench. “The dead dont stay where they are buried,” she tells him. And so begins a remarkable odyssey, told in simple yet gorgeous prose, that carries us from the London Blitz in 1943, to a Polish market, to a Paleolithic cave, to the Ritz Hotel in Madrid. Here Is Where We Meet is a unique literary journey that moves freely through time and space but never loses its foothold in the sensuous present.

Andrew, February 21, 2007 (view all comments by Andrew)
It would be a shame if, as rumored, this is to be Berger's last novel, for "Here is Where We Meet" finds Berger in top form. Sliding sideways through the ambiances and experiences of a post-historical Europe, moving from Portugal to Poland, Geneva to his longtime home in the French Haute-Savoie, Berger maps the personal atop the public, the political atop the quotidian. His silvery prose glistens, beautiful yet severe in its spareness and precision. Not a word is wasted. With the death of Sebald, Berger stands alone.
