Rezensionen
It is extraordinary... [It] would seem to pull off the impossible: to recreate, on the page, what it is like to be alive in the world. Emma Brockes Guardian"Ein außergewöhnlich intimes und ehrliches Buch über Liebe und Trauer" The Times
Julian Barnes schreibt über die menschliche Existenz auf der Erde und in der Luft. Wir lernen Nadar kennen, Pionier der Ballonfahrt und einer der ersten Fotografen, die Luftaufnahmen machten, sowie Colonel Fred Burnaby, der zum eigenwilligen Bewunderer der extravaganten Schauspielerin Sarah Bernhardt wird. Und wir lesen über Julian Barnes eigene Trauer über den Tod seiner Frau schonungslos offen, präzise und tief berührend. Ein Buch über das Wagnis zu lieben.
"Eines der besten, bewegendsten Bücher, die es gibt" Evening Standard
