Get Reading: Lovesong

Lovesong by Alex Miller

Seeking shelter from a sudden rainstorm in a rundown Tunisian cafe on Paris's fringe, John Patterner meets the exotic Sabiha and his carefully mapped life changes forever. Theirs becomes a contented but unlikely marriage, yet because they are essentially foreigners to each other their love sets in train a series of tragic events. Written by a two-time Miles Franklin Literary Award winner and currently shortlisted for the 2010 Miles Franklin Award, Lovesong is resonant and captivating, a simple love story and yet so much more.
