From the internationally best-selling author ofThe Reader, here is a collection of stories that weave themselves around the idea of love--love to seek and love to flee; love as desire, as guilt, as confusion or self-betrayal; love as habit, as affair, and as life-changing rebellion. As his myriad fans know fromThe Reader, Bernhard Schlink's power as a storyteller resides in his cool compassion and in the intelligence that he wields like a laser to penetrate human motives and human behavior. Here his subject is not history but the heart itself, and with the forensic delicacy of a master he lays bare the essence of our feelings. Already an enormous success in the author's native Germany,Flights of Loveis certain to be celebrated, discussed, read and re-read.

This is a collection of seven short stories by German writer Bernhard Schlink, translated into the English language from German. The theme here is 'love'. Pretty easy, light but thought-provoking reading. Enjoyable.
