Synopsis:
From the internationally best-selling author of The Reader, here is a collection of stories that weave themselves around the idea of love—love to seek and love to flee; love as desire, as guilt, as confusion or self-betrayal; love as habit, as affair, and as life-changing rebellion.

As his myriad fans know from The Reader, Bernhard Schlink’s power as a storyteller resides in his cool compassion and in the intelligence that he wields like a laser to penetrate human motives and human behavior. Here his subject is not history but the heart itself, and with the forensic delicacy of a master he lays bare the essence of our feelings.

Already an enormous success in the author’s native Germany, Flights of Love is certain to be celebrated, discussed, read and re-read.

Review:
"[P]atiently detailed, emotionally complex tales....Schlink's stories excavate the sources of his characters' singularity and uncertainty in their past histories, and also thrust forward....Touching, involving short fiction from a writer who eschews bold imagery and stylistic fireworks--and slowly, doggedly gets into your head and under your skin."

Kirkus, 09/23/2001

Review:
"...Schlink brings a powerful analytic intelligence to bear on his characters, who tend to be laid out cold on the table, just barely breathing....Schlink's tales of botched and betrayed love unfold in a stripped-down prose...that is pleasingly crystalline when viewed from some angles and simply colorless from others."

Jennifer Schuessler, New York Times Book Review, 09/30/2001
