The Far Away
Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungWith an undercurrent of anger and at times irreverent dark humor, The Far Away is a moving story of desperate searches for second chances as a young man recalls a difficult time in his past when he struggled to deal with a brother's problems, a woman he thought he loved and the decisions made. The need to escape, the pull to return, drifting around the country, the violence and tenderness - Now it's coming back for him to deal with, whether he wants to or not. And he's learning that remembering is not the hardest part. Excerpt from the book: "And the thing about it was this: I was starting to think of that stuff all over again when I felt her breath on the back of my neck, just behind my ear, a warm summer evening to which I turned, taking her in my arms, mouth upon mouth, and moving into each other, arms entwined, legs entwined, and I thought how nice that man and woman should compliment each other so perfectly as we lay together joined in passion and in love, in friendship and in love, and wasn't this the answer to the hurting world."
