Summary expansion
"At its heart ..."The Life-Writer" turns on the same ideas of love, loss and memory that animate 'In Another Country' and has about it much the same air of tempered suffering. It would, we might expect, be filmed in the same ... manner as "45 Years.""Times Literary Supplement"Constantine . . proves himself yet again one of the greatest analysts of feeling working in fiction today, and one of the most lyrical. The first chapter is so shockingly accomplished that I had to stop, go back and immediately reread it."The Guardian"Here, Constantine] has a persistent interest in the discarded pieces of other people's lives that can reawaken one's own past, or open up the incommunicable in the present."Financial Times"After the death of her beloved husband, Katrin, a literary biographer, copes with the loss by writing his personal history. While researching the letters and journals he left behind, however, she comes to the devastating conclusion that his life before their marriage was far richer than the one they shared. To understand and recreate the period of his greatest happinesshitch-hiking through France as a young man, madly in love with his companion, a French girl named MoniqueKatrin embarks on a heartbreaking journey to discover the man she never fully knew.David Constantine is an award-winning short story writer, poet, and, translator. The title story of his North American debut collection of short fiction, "In Another Country: Selected Stories "(Biblioasis, 2015) was adapted into the Academy Awardnominated feature film "45 Years."
