Descrizione

Summer 1946. World War II has just come to an end, and there’s a yearning for renewal. A man in his thirties is sailing on Lake Maggiore in northern Italy, hoping to put off the inevitable return to work. Dropping anchor in a small, fashionable port, he meets the enigmatic owner of a nearby villa who invites him home for dinner with his older wife and beautiful widowed sister-in-law. The sailor is intrigued by the elegant waterside mansion, staffed with servants and imbued with mystery, and stays in a guest room previously occupied by a now-deceased bishop related to his host. The two men form an uneasy bond, recognizing in each other a shared taste for idling and erotic adventure. They soon set sail together, encountering old flames and making new conquests. But tragedy puts an abrupt halt to their revels and shatters the tranquility of the villa. What really happened on the dock? And who was the figure glimpsed cycling around the shore in the dark?

    this book is just a sexist and racist nightmare. would not recommend.
  • (5/5)
    I enjoyed it. The reader makes it more fan as well
  • (4/5)
    I will admit right off that I chose this book because I was so intrigued by the cover. Yup, contrary to what they tell you, I DO sometimes judge a book by it’s cover!!

    As it turns out, this short novella was quite enjoyable. Good writing with beautiful narration. A young man gets reeled in by a seemingly friendly slightly older fellow, proceeds to get into a lot more trouble than he bargained for(!), and soon realizes that making fast friends and getting chummy with people you don’t really know can be tricky business. As it turns out, the young man is not on such sure footing himself, filled with indecision, conflict, and uncertainty.

    The book definitely held my interest and kept me wondering all the way through what was going to happen next! The author conjures up quite a cast of interesting as well as perhaps a little strange characters. All factors that, in my opinion, can make for very good listening/reading. Check it out!!
