The Conversation (Paperback)

Author: David Brooks



 buy ebook 

A novel brimming with mystery, confessions, food and philosophy.

A young woman and an older man meet by accident – a gust of wind – at a restaurant in Trieste and find themselves dining together. They embark upon a conversation of the kind that can perhaps only happen between total strangers – risky, philosophical, full of the most intimate stories and confessions. She has questions. He finds, as the wine flows, delicious dishes come and go, and the velvet night deepens, that he doesn’t have as many answers as he might have thought he had.


Hardback edition also available.
