Where are the snows
"The most exhilarating novel I've read all year."--"Scotland"" on Sunday" "A rich story of the heart told through a harlequin pattern of alternating voices, each of which is a work of real imaginative insight."--"Marie Claire" Christopher and Alexandra's passion for each other raises eyebrows and invites envy. This beautiful, blinkered couple do the unthinkable and run away from home, abandoning their two teenage children. Their sudden departure is an act of glorious willfulness. Life in the countries they visit is nothing more than a backdrop to their love affair. Fifteen years later, Alexandra is in remote Bolivia with a lover young enough to be her son and Christopher is in Venice, desolate and alone but for the pigeons and prostitutes. Tormented by past mistakes, neither can accept that they may never meet again.
