Product Description

From the author of the internationally acclaimed and bestselling novel, THE READER, a mesmerising collection of stories about about love in all its guises.

A conversation between strangers on a long-haul flight will change lives for ever; one night in Baden-Baden will threaten to tear a couple apart; a meeting with an ex-lover will give a divorcee a second chance; holiday lovers will struggle in the harsh reality of daily routine...

As Schlink's characters navigate their lives, we discover the many faces of love: the small betrayals, hidden truths and abiding affections. In Schlink's trademark spare prose, we come face to face with the desires and jealousies that define our daily lives, with the fragility of happiness and with the abiding possibility of hope.

Tender yet unsentimental, achingly personal yet utterly universal, SUMMER LIES asks what it means to love, to deceive and, ultimately, to be human.

From the bestselling author of THE READER, a mesmerising book about love in all its guises.Summer Lies is pleasingly dark in its reflections on disappointment and sorrow in adult life ... Admirers of The Reader will not be dissappointedUnlike many novelists who use short fiction as a rest stop on the highway to longer works, Schlink seems to have lingered with these stories. Each story in Summer Lies has heft, solidtyWith his mournful, meditative new collection of stories, translated, like The Reader, by Carol Brown Janeway, Mr Schlink comes closer than ever to putting the war behind himThe Reader is a fine novel ... A sensitive, daring, deeply moving book about the tragic results of fear and the redemptive power of understandingCrammed with incident and analysis, and yet Schlink finds room for virtuoso passages of evocation ... compellingExtraordinary depth and worldwide critical acclaimA succinct fascinating insight into Germany's ongoing examination of its troubled pastTold with an elegant realism.As in his previous books - most notably, The Reader (1995) - Schlink meditates on guilt and conscience. But the focus of his reflections has shifted from Germany's Nazi past to his characters' private lives. Love and family are the things at stake here, and each story turns on the pursuit and unmasking of a deception... This is the book's notion of summer: a season as precarious and fleeting as the moments of love around which Bernhard Schlink's characters build edifices of deceit
