The seminal English novel about music and the way it lingers in the heart, drifting through life like a Venetian canal, imperceptibly enriching our existence. It is a novel about love and loss, noise and silence, desire, and those disquieting murmurs in the pit of your stomach you feel when in the presence of true beauty. A classic love story for the modern era. This is the only book I have ever read in which I craved a happy ending.
