Publisher's Summary

In this superb novella, a nameless narrator travels to Venice in search of Juliana Bordereau, the former lover of Jeffrey Aspern, a famous and now dead American poet. We witness the battle between a strong-willed woman who is determined to keep the secrets of a famous poet and an unscrupulous man who is equally determined to uncover them.

    "Absolutely delightful"

    I enjoyed every second of this audiobook. The writing is simply superb: rich, candid, subtly ironic, seemingly effortless. Almost needless to say, the characters are portrayed to perfection, with psychological and emotional depth. In short, I can't find a bad word to say about this book.

    I should also note that Grover Gardner, as usual, delivers an impeccable and sensitive performance, never missing the subtle nuances in the text and bringing the book to life.

    Highly recommended.
