Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374102759, Hardcover)

A Boston Globe Best Nonfiction Book of 2011
 
Celebrated as one of the most poignant stylists of his generation, André Aciman has written a luminous series of linked essays about time, place, identity, and art that show him at his very finest. From beautiful and moving pieces about the memory evoked by the scent of lavender; to meditations on cities like Barcelona, Rome, Paris, and New York; to his sheer ability to unearth life secrets from an ordinary street corner, Alibis reminds the reader that Aciman is a master of the personal essay.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:44:05 -0400)

A collection of essays examines the memory evoked by the scent of lavender, meditations on the world's great cities, looking for the meaning of life on a street corner and much more.
