Reminiscent of novels by Nick Hornby, Muriel Barbery, and Jonathan Tropper,internationally acclaimed novelist David Foenkinosdelivers a heartfelt and deftly comedic tale of new love brightening the darkaftermath of loss--and of wounded hearts finding refuge in the strangest ofplaces. After her husband's unexpected death, Natalie has erected a fortressaround her emotions--and Markus, clumsy and unassuming, will never be her knightin shining armor. Yet slowly but surely, an offbeat romance begins betweenthese two mismatched, complex souls, and contrary to everything Natalie knowsof affection, her perfect suitor may turn out to be love's most unlikelycandidate--the fool, not the hero, who is finally able to reach her heart.
