About this title

Synopsis:

'Building inexorably to its climax, this is one of those exquisitely constructed little novels that is impossible to put down.' MAX DAVIDSON, DAILY TELEGRAPH. After a personal tragedy, a man leaves the United States to begin life abroad. The country in which he finds himself is inordinately influenced by his imagination, and the events there are eerily reminiscent of his past, especially when he falls in love with two women simultaneously. Andorra is a small country, populated (almost exclusively) by the ancient Mrs. Reinhardt; the Dents, an Australian couple, who share a secret; Sophonsobia Quay and her two beautiful but troubled daughters; Esmeralda St. Pitt, who runs a boardinghouse, Ali, the fatalistic purveyor of coffee; and Alexander Fox, who finds himself in a crisis of identity.

Review:

Andorra, the tiny storybook nation snug in the Pyrenees between France and Spain is the setting for Peter Cameron's third book, a lyrical tale that begins as a charming story of manners and romantic relations in the tiny township of La Plata, but develops into a darker (though still comic) story of deception and psychological intrigue. The author's earlier invocations of Proust and Austen give way to impulses akin to Kafka or Camus. When should you stop trusting your narrator's memories and figure out what is really going on in this place? All is not what it seems, as the dark past of several characters returns to dim the brightness of the present surroundings. The hyper-reality of the charming mountain town Cameron creates is the ideal setting for this engaging tale, told in perfect measure, tightly stitched, with no extra bits hanging loosely.
