Description
The acclaimed, award-winning author of the national bestseller The Financial Lives of the Poets returns with his funniest, most romantic, and most purely enjoyable novel yet: the story of an almost-love affair that begins on the Italian coast in 1962 . . . and is rekindled in Hollywood fifty years later. "Why mince words? Beautiful Ruins is an absolute masterpiece." --Richard Russo "A ridiculously talented writer." --New York Times
