Five unforgettable stories. What a delight when a writer hits his target as deftly and with such beauty as Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt does in Invisible Love "( New York Journal of Books ). In this latest collection, two young lovers secretly love the child they will never be able to have; an esteemed physician and survivor of the Nazi concentration camps finds inner peace thanks to the love of a faithful dog; a man loves his wife through the memories of her first husband; and a mother rediscovers love for her child when someone tries to take that child from her. And finally, Severine and Benjamin understand that they have lost the love of their lives when they see themselvesthrough the eyes of a young terminally ill girl. Love is not easy, and not always easy to find; at times, it is obliged to circumvent social norms, and thus transform them; it must be desired, sought, defended. We cannot know what life has in store for us, but we do know that whatever it is, it will only be meaningful if borne on the wings of love. Schmitt''s sublime stories remind us how true this is.Praise for Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt "There is a surprising sweetness to Schmitt''s stories of redemption and reconciliation. They carry a slight pleasant aftertaste, a lingering hint of delight." - The Boston Globe "Schmitt''s stories capture a quirky, clever, feminist, very French sensibility." - Publishers Weekly "Moral fables, gilded mini-legends: Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt''s stories are fiendishly efficient. Schmitt is a prodigious story-teller with a style both elegant and assured." - Les Echos "
Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, playwright, novelist, and author of short stories, was awarded the French Academy''s Grand Prix du Theatre in 2001. He is one of Europe''s most popular authors.
