The novel also tells the intertwining tales of the couple's diverse cast of friends -- from a gay British aristocrat to a six-foot-tall Dinka Jesuit - all of whom have had close encounters with death and all of whom choose to celebrate life

This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather with raised bands and features gilded sewn-in pages and a satin marker. Simply superb quality; Franklin Library at its best.
