Read full description of the books:From the internationally best-selling author of "The Reader," here is a collection of stories that weave themselves around the idea of love--love to seek and love to flee; love as desire, as guilt, as confusion or self-betrayal; love as habit, as affair, and as life-changing rebellion.
As his myriad fans know from "The Reader," Bernhard Schlink's power as a storyteller resides in his cool compassion and in the intelligence that he wields like a laser to penetrate human motives and human behavior. Here his subject is not history but the heart itself, and with the forensic delicacy of a master he lays bare the essence of our feelings.
Already an enormous success in the author's native Germany, Flights of Love is certain to be celebrated, discussed, read and re-read.
