The Man Who Was Late

Author(s): Louis Begley

SECONDHAND BOOKS | Literary Fiction

"Begley writes with a contemplative wisdom that permeates his work.... He] has captured some of the wispy melancholy of midcentury fiction, and this feat in itself is mellifluous to both ear and spirit." THE BOSTON GLOBEA man without a country or family, a Holocaust survivor, Ben long ago left the wreckage of Europe and recreated himself as a brilliant financier. He rejects the comforts of love and is shocked to discover Veronique--beautiful, unwisely married, and all that Ben suddenly knows he has always needed. In their stolen hours and weekends, their deep commitment to one another fills their lives as nothing ever has. But the question remains: Can Ben finally take what he has always denied himself...' BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Louis Begley's "Memories of a Marriage."

1994. A very good copy.
