It has been a little while since I read this book, I think it may have been aboard a sailing boat. I digress (but a peak reading experience of me is reading aboard a boat).
I remember less the story than the sensation of reading it. It is an intelligent book, a conversation that rolls the word 'love' around in its mouth.
Penguin paperback well read but still nicely intact
First published 2005, this edition 2006.
