Who is Eugene (Geno) Miles? A lonely curmudgeonly old man living out his final days in an elder-care facility or a true anomaly: a thousand-year-old-man searching for a love he lost long ago.
Evison’s epic of empathy and emotion journeys from Moorish Spain to Victorian England and 1930s Los Angeles, and as we learn the truth about Geno, we learn the biggest truth of all: that love — timeless and elusive — is often right in front of us.
Like all of Jonathan’s books, Geno’s story reads fast and hits hard, staying with the reader long after finishing the book.
