Frequently bought together
An Amazon Best Book of December 2017: In his restrained, intelligent, and highly affecting new novel, Olaf Olafsson portrays a man at a perpetual, frustrating state of estrangement with the world. Olafsson, whose previous novels include The Journey Home and Walking into the Night, here imagines the life of a neurobiologist, Magnus, whose relationships with three women (his pianist mother, his partner, and a “locked in” patient) are marked by questions about authenticity and identity. Magnus is a very particular person, but his desire to know more about the women he loves feels universal. --Sarah Harrison Smith, Amazon Book Review
“...A remarkably tender, touching exploration of a man’s emotional journey to reconcile the past with the present.” (Booklist)

The gorgeously told love story between Magnus and Malena touched my heart and then broke it. Their relationship is brought so vividly to life. The author’s delving into the relationship between Magnus and his parents is told meticulously and expertly and I could feel his confusion and longings so clearly. I found the medical studies concerning Magnus’ patient to be fascinating and suspenseful. In each area of Magnus’ world, the author brings us his powerful and insightful interpretation.
I’m looking forward to reading more of his work. Mr. Olafsson is the Vice President of Time Warner and is best known for his introduction of PlayStation while working at Sony. I wish he’d devote all of his time to writing but there are a few past books of his already published that I’ll be getting soon.
Most highly recommended.
