Isabelle in the Afternoon, Paperback / softback Book

Isabelle in the Afternoon Paperback / softback


Before Isabelle I knew nothing of sex. Before Isabelle I knew nothing of freedom. Before Isabelle I knew nothing of life. Paris in the early Seventies. Sam, an American student, meets a woman in a bookshop.

Isabelle is enigmatic, beautiful, older and, unlike Sam, experienced in love's many contradictions. Sam is instantly smitten - but wary of the wedding ring on her finger. What begins as a regular arrangement in Isabelle's tiny Parisian apartment transforms into a true affair of the heart, and one which lasts for decades to come. Isabelle in the Afternoon is a novel that questions what we seek, what we find, what we settle for - and shows how love, when not lived day in, day out, can become the passion of a lifetime. 'The absolute master of love stories with heart-stopping twists' THE TIMES'Kennedy is skilled at zigzag plotting, blending domestic twists with turns created by global affairs' OBSERVER
