In the midst of reading Truth and Beauty, I'm also reading Lucca by the celebrated Danish novelist Jens Christian Grondahl. I just tried to find information about Grondahl, but there's almost nothing biographical in English that's available online. Lucca is literary fiction (heavy on the literary;i.e. long, detailed descriptions of absolutely everything), but although it's slow-going in places, it's powerful. I'm hooked on the story and am so involved with the plights of Lucca and Richard, that it's hard to be distracted away from it. Lucca is in a mess; she's been blinded in a car accident and her husband has taken off for parts unknown. Richard, Lucca's doctor, is unhappily divorced with a beloved child he sees rarely. In the long evenings at the hospital, they share their stories.
