Synopsis:
A blind Greek peddler tells the story of the wedding between a fellow peddler and his bride in a remarkable series of vivid and telling vignettes. As the book cinematically moves from one character's perspective to another, events and characters move toward the convergence of the wedding--and a haunting dance of love and death.

Review:
With the sensuous eye and profound sense of history that have made him one of the most acclaimed living novelists, John Berger, author of G., tells the story of a wedding that takes place in a Europe that is approaching the end of the century, a place where everything has changed - and not even the certainties of love are exempt. This is Berger's fin de siecle , a transcendent celebration of passion at the end of our millennium.

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. We are in the new Europe, where political freedom moves in concert with the play of human desire. We are listening to the voices of a blind Greek peddler, of Gino, and of Gino s fiancee, Ninon. We follow Ninon s mother in Bratislava, and her father in the South of France, as they begin their separate journeys to the Italian coastal village where Ninon and Gino will wed. And through their journeys, Ninon s story unfolds: how her parents met, the events of her childhood, her first romance, how she fell in love with Gino, then rejected Gino s love, and how she was finally won over by him to marriage. On her wedding day Ninon will kick off her shoes and dance forever with Gino as the band strikes up Last Friday Drives Monday Crazy. This is the story of a wedding such as could only take place at the end of our century. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780679767770
