Amigo un atormentado artista autoexiliado en una isla remota Mientras le observa el pintor recuerda sus anos de amistad el regalo envenenado del mecenazgo del Shame on me I bought this book long looooong ago but tucked it away on one of my faraway shelves without ever reading it due to the fact that I once tried another book by this author but ultimately had to give up because I found it completely unreadable and thus incomprehensible at the time Conseuently it had me convinced that either his writing style wasn't my cup of tea or that my pea brain just wasn't able to translate his clever writing into plain English but whatever the reason I never was in a hurry to try againHowever recently I made a deal with myself to finally work my way through all those books on forgotten shelves that I never read and so Iain Pears and I met once again And it pleases me to no end to say that time around I enjoyed his company so SO much I won't go into what the story is about because I truly think that the less you know about the plot going in the better your enjoyment of it will be Just let the story come to you as it unfolds leisurely completely in its own time And don't uit before the end because the ending is what tilts this story from good to great 475 stars

Brilliant idea But Pears the author of not one but two previous masterpieces is in this instance sadly no Poe
