Acerca de

Sinopsis:

Cockroft, a faded composer and socialite, lives in self-imposed exile and fantasizes of true love and extravagant suicides. Rattling around his dilapidated farmhouse in the Italian countryside, his only constant source of company is the ever-loyal Timoleon Vieta, a mongrel with the most beautiful eyes. When a handsome but surly individual arrives on the scene, Cockroft is forced to choose between his dog and this new arrival. He abandons Timoleon outside Rome's Colosseum, where the dog begins the long journey home.
In this acclaimed novel, Dan Rhodes, one of Granta's Best Young British Novelists, has created a tragicomic work of macabre beauty that both amuses and moves in equal measure.

Críticas:

"Resembles Italo Calvino's Difficult Loves and Alberto Moravia's The Voice of the Sea, which is saying something. As one of Granta's best young British novelists, Rhodes clearly has a firm grasp of passionate misunderstandings and hopeless undertakings. It's almost enough to make you cry."

PRAISE FOR TIMOLEON VIETA COME HOME
"A quite thoroughly original debut . . . An anomalous blend of humor, heartfelt emotion, and old-fashioned storytelling verve." -Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times Book Review
"Funny, beguiling and sentimental, with a dark undertow that will tug at the memory."-Time
