Sometimes it’s hard to sympathize with the emotional ease as Leilac jumps from woman to woman, from sex to sex. Clearly, many of the women in the book expected more than a fleeting relationship with Leilac. But then we see how Leilac treated each one of these women and realize he loved each of them intensely. Leilac and Astrid’s story is very beautiful and touching. I cried a lot with the letter that Astrid wrote to Leilac at the hotel in Barcelona. I loved Mariangela and Leilac’s days in Tuscany, it couldn’t be more romantic. I identify myself with the incredible and funny story of Venice and Cortina; what an adventure was there.
