9780099578604: Frances and Bernard

It is not love at first sight for Frances and Bernard.

She finds him faintly ridiculous while he sees her as aloof. But after that first meeting, Bernard writes Frances a letter which changes everything and soon they are immersed in the kind of fast, deep friendship that can alter the course of lives. They find their way to New York and discover cramped West Village kitchens, rowdy cocktail parties stocked with the sharp-witted and glamorous, taxis that can take you anywhere at all and long talks along the Hudson River as the lights of the Empire State Building blink on above.

Irresistibly witty and deeply moving, Frances and Bernard is a story of kindred spirits and the people who help us discover who we are.

Review:

"Evocative…witty…sparky" ( Stylist)

"Bauer captures the style and language of the period with gleeful dexterity… Exquisite" ( Washington Post)

"The characters’ charm and intelligence make them irresistible company" ( Daily Mail)

"A story of conversion, shattered love and the loss of faith, recalling 20th-century masters like Graham Greene and Walker Percy… Bauer is a distinctive stylist who can write about Simone Weil or Kierkegaard with wit and charm." ( New York Times Book Review)

"Warm, intelligent and addictive" (Katie Allen The Simple Things)

Book Description:

Two writers, one friendship, and an unforgettable correspondence. A glittering, smart and sassy debut of love, literature and letter writing.
