    Description

    In Edmund White's most moving novel yet, an American living in Paris finds his life transformed by an unexpected love affair.

    Austin Smith is pushing fifty, loveless and drifting, until one day he meets Julien, a much younger, married Frenchman. In the beginning, the lovers' only impediments are the comic clashes of culture, age, and temperament. Before long, however, the past begins to catch up with them. In a desperate quest to save health and happiness, they move from Venice to Key West, from Montreal in the snow to Providence in the rain. But it is amid the bleak, baking sands of the Sahara that their love is pushed to its ultimate crisis.

    Keep away from this one

    I generally don’t write negative reviews but this novel is just insufferable. Bad writing, pretentious, bad style, ridiculously long. The narration is bad, as well. After the third chapter (out of 21) I couldn’t stand it any longer.

    Beautiful writing...very, very sad story.

    I love this very talented author whose poetic prose is a delight to listen to. This story takes place in the 1980’s, during the height of the AIDS crisis and, therefore, this is the central issue. The well developed characters are so vibrantly real they fairly bounce right off the page. It was easy to become very empathetic and very attached. For some reason there are a lot of negative reviews with regards to the narrator, Ken Kliban but I wholeheartedly disagree! I like Mr. Kliban, very much, and delighted in listening to his excellent performance of this beautiful but ultimately heartbreaking story.

    Ouch!

    DNF for me. It was the cadence and the abnormal breathing. At first I thought he has a beautiful voice, but he literally ruined the story. By chapter 9 I had to stop, because I was seriously starting to contemplate murder.

    Insufferable narration

    I could stand only a few minutes of this narration so have no basis on which to judge the writing.
