A handful of disparate lives converge at a remote seaside inn: a lovelorn professor, a renowned painter, an inscrutable seductress - and a beautiful young girl, fatally ill, brought to the sea by a desperate father's last hope. An intricate web of destinies and associations begins to reveal itself, but it is not until the arrival of a mysterious sailor called Adams that the truth in all its dreamlike beauty and cruelty becomes clear. Adams may furnish the key to the girl's salvation, but only the fulfilment of his obsessive secret purpose - to answer murder with murder - can conclude the journey that has brought him from the ends of the earth. Alternately playful and profoundly serious, Baricco's novel surges with the hypnotic power of the ocean sea.

Baricco is an exemplary storyteller . . . [he] shows a Bertolucci-like, chair-hopping, gesticulating sense of sheer joy, that turns this tragic tale into a bittersweet tragi-comedy. * * Time Out * * Compelling, profound and sharply funny -- Stephanie Merritt * * Observer * * Highly romantic and breathtakingly lyrical * * New York Times Book Review * * Baricco has produced a work of miraculously spun sugar, at which many people will gasp in admiration. * * Spectator * * This is a novel driven by the pleasure of narrative. Unburdened by a single perspective, the writing is ethereal. * * Telegraph * * Baricco has produced a beguilingly unusual beach book. * * The Times * *
