Book Title
The Evening of the Holiday
Shirley Hazzard
In the words of Time magazine, "A near perfect novel...a small masterpiece" by the author of The Great FirePassionate undercurrents sweep in and out of this eloquent novel about a love affair in a summer countryside in Italy and its inevitable end. It takes place in a setting of pastoral beauty during a time of celebration--a festival.Sophie, half English, half Italian, meets Tancredi, an Italian who is separated from his wife and family. In telling the story of their love affair, Shirley Hazzard punctures the placid surface of polite Italian society to reveal the intense yearnings and surprising responses in sophisticated people caught up in emotions they do not always understand.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Shirley HazzardPublisher: St. Martins Press-3PLPublished: 07/01/2004ISBN: 9780312423261Pages: 138Weight: 0.42lbsSize: 8.31h x 5.73w x 0.36dReview Citations: New York Times 07/04/2004 pg. 20
