Description
Set in the cities and islands of the Mediterranean, and linked thematically, the eight stories in this distilled collection read more like a novel, a meditation on memory, life, and death, from the highly lauded Dutch poet and novelist who also wrote Nomad's Hotel and Lost Paradise. In "Paula," the narrator evokes the mysterious, brief life of a woman he once loved; in "Paula II," the same woman is aware of the man thinking of her. No longer a body, she is slowly fading into the distance, remembering the time they spent together, and his fear of the black night when the foxes appear. The dust jacket of this book has had a non-removable sticker applied.

"Cees Nooteboom's short novels are exquisite toys for the broken-hearted, erudite tales that revolve around themes of loss and despair but are never less than playful."Independent (London)
