"Though it begins with a nocturnal walk, The Feast of Love is exactly what it sounds like - an assortment of intertwined and deliciously told stories of love flavoured by everything from passion to regret. They feature a man working to get over his first - and then his second - wife, a young couple madly in love, and a professor who longs for his missing son. The 2007 movie had an all-star cast (including Morgan Freeman and Greg Kinnear), but you should read the book to get a true taste of "the seemingly effortless ebb and flow of the author's clear-sighted yet deeply poetic vision" (Publishers Weekly)."
