Inhaltsangabe: " Christopher Burton, the protagonist of Tim Parks's masterful new novel, is one of Britain's foremost foreign correspondents, the acknowledged world expert on Italian affairs. Three months after returning to London with his Italian wife for an extended stay, Burton, while standing at the reception desk of the Rembrandt Hotel in London's Knightsbridge, receives a phone call informing him that his teenage son has committed suicide. Why, upon receiving this terrible news, does he immediately conclude that his marriage of almost thirty years is over? And why is grief so slow in coming? Burton feels his pious, mercurial wife may have given him his life in Italy, even his prestigious career, but she has also made his life impossible.

Was their troubled son somehow the victim of their long, explosive love-hate relationship? Looking back, Burton sees in his life a web of contradictions, unanswered questions, and confusions. And yet, this life has been his destiny.

Intensely dramatic, dark, and yet often hilariously funny, Destiny is a seamless, beautifully plotted story and a profound meditation on marriage and identity, at once romantic and callous, brilliant and blind. In Destiny, Parks offers us a searing account of what it means to tread the narrow line between sanity and psychosis."

Inhaltsangabe: Christopher Burton, Britain's foremost foreign correspondent, has returned with his Italian wife to London for an extended stay. One morning, while at the reception desk of his Knights-bridge hotel, he receives a phone call announcing that his teenage son has committed suicide in Italy. Why, upon hearing the news, does he immediately conclude that his marriage of thirty years is over? And why is grief so slow in coming? Analyzing the three decades of his love-hate relationship, Burton finds his life a web of contradictions, questions, and confusions. And yet, clearly, it has also been his destiny.

Dramatic, dark, and surprisingly funny, Destiny is a mesmerizing novel, a meditation on marriage and identity, at once romantic and callous, insightful and blunt: Tim Parks at his brilliant best.
