Pianos and Flowers: Brief Encounters of the Romantic Kind
Alexander McCall Smith (Author)
In Pianos and Flowers we are invited to glimpse a world long departed. In these stories, inspired by long-lost photographs, the lives of the people in the frame are imagined and then explored, layer by layer.
Three sisters brought up in Penang, caught in the tide of war.
A group of small boys in a Glasgow slum – their childhood blighted by poverty, their adult lives taking very different paths.
A young woman’s search for love in the unlikely realm of Egyptian antiquities.
And through all of these photographs, and all of these stories, there runs the same refrain: the possibilities of love, of friendship, of happiness lie before us.
