The acclaimed, award-winning author of the national bestseller The Financial Lives of the Poets returns with his  funniest, most romantic, and most purely enjoyable novel yet: the story of an almost-love affair that begins on the Italian coast in 1962 . . . and is rekindled in Hollywood fifty years later.  

“Why mince words? Beautiful Ruins is an absolute masterpiece.” —Richard Russo

“A ridiculously talented writer.” —New York Times

Editorial reviews (4 reviews)


Beautiful Ruins is the sort of book that others might describe as “sprawling,” “epic” or a “tour de force,” and I suppose that’s all true, but the first thing that comes to my mind is grand.

"Beautiful Ruins" delivers both outcomes at once, in a mix of satire and love story rich with "the sort of funny that makes you sad, too." Also happy.

His balanced mixture of pathos and comedy stirs the heart and amuses as it also rescues us from the all too human pain that is the motor of this complex and ever-evolving novel.
