Reading his novels is like being in an Edward Hopper painting, listening to Henry James perhaps, with Gregory Peck in To Kill A Mocking Bird as the main character.
I started with The Chateau. A story about a happy couple a freind said and I thought Oh I could do with that - a happy story, and I knew I was going to France so I was extra interested. I read it slowly to savour the beautiful writing. it was a happy read I am glad to say.
They Came Like Swallows is told from three points of view. Insightful and tender with characters who are totally credible. Maybe the one to start with to see if you like this author.
Be warned that So Long, See You Tomorrow is perhaps the saddest book I have ever read.
