MR Gwyn

Description

Jasper Gwyn is a writer, he lives in London, and is a man who truly loves life. Suddenly, he has an urge to stop writing, although his is not the crisis that afflicts those writers lacking in inspiration. He seems to want a change of perspective, to reach the heart of a certain magic. His support, his inspiration, is a woman who begins to gather that which gradually becomes the mystery of Mr Gwyn. Baricco enters into the secret symmetries of this mystery with the confident and determined step of he who knows and loves the paths he follows, and the result is a literary gem. "Baricco is audacious to have written a book about the possibility of disappearing with the aim of finding oneself again" (Marco Missiroli, Corriere della Sera). "A poetic thriller... the narrative rythm is meticulously controlled by its architect, master of details and ellipsis. Not a single word is wasted" (Panorama).
