Flights of Love: Stories Cover

 

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:

The acclaimed author of The Reader explores the mysteries of the human heart and complex emotional aspects of love in a collection of short fiction about love, which includes such works as "Girl with Lizard," "A Little Fling," "The Circumcision," and "The Other Man," the inspiration for the forthcoming film. Reissue. (A Gotham Group/Rainmark Films movie, directed by Richard Eyre, releasing December 2008, starring Antonio Banderas, Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, & Romola Garai) (Story Collection)
