2 The Gustav Sonata

2 The Gustav Sonata by Rose Tremain

Paperback £8.99

Staff Recommendation: Beginning in a small town in Switzerland just after the war, Rose Tremain’s novel tells the story of Gustav, the son of a dead and disgraced policeman, and his deep friendship with Anton, a musical prodigy whose parent are wealthy Jews. Anton however is self-centred and takes Gustav – often lonely- for granted. A subtle understated book that leaves an indelible mark.
