A story of love, of loss and time. In short, what it feels like to grow older.
“I learned very early on in my life that nothing was for ever; so I should have been aware of disillusion in early middle age: but, somehow, we try to obliterate early warnings and go cantering along hopefully, idiotically...”
Beautiful Deconstruction charts the disintegration of the idyll between Douglas and Anthony as they leave their retreat in France and return full circle for an uncertain future in London.
Mark has a unique way of treating his reader. You are falsely trapped into a world of loveliness and then, bang, amber light, the deconstruction begins. A beautiful book indeed.
