Synopsis:

Bernhard Schlink brings to these seven superbly crafted stories the same sleek concision and moral acuity that made The Reader an international bestseller. His characters–men with importunate appetites and unfortunate habits of deception–are uneasily suspended between the desire for love and the impulse toward flight.
A young boy’s fascination with an eerily erotic painting gradually leads him into the labyrinth of his family’s secrets. The friendship between a West Berliner and an idealistic young couple from the East founders amid the prosperity and revelations that follow the collapse of communism. An acrobatic philanderer (one wife and two mistresses, all apparently quite happy) begins to crack under the weight of his abundance. By turns brooding and comic, and filled with the suspense that comes from the inexorable unfolding of character, Flights of Love is nothing less than masterful


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
