A wonderful book that deals with love, loss, and resilience in the south of France before and during WWII. Through all of this, it weaves in the beauty and magic of art and French artists of the time. A very enjoyable read.
An amazing account of an ill-fated team attempting to climb Everest. Beautifully written. I would recommend watching the IMAX film of Everest AFTER you read this book (the IMAX team was on the mountain at the same time).
