4.0/5 Goodreads

On a cold day in January, J. Mendelssohn wakes in his Upper East Side apartment. Old and frail, the former judge waits for the heating to come one, the clacking of the pipes stirring memories of his past. He meets his son for lunch, who departs mid-meal, leaving Mendelssohn to eat alone. Moments after he leaves the restaurant, he is brutally attacked. Detectives comb through footage of his movements, their work like that of a poet searching for a word that will suddenly make sense of everything. Told from multiple perspectives, Thirteen Ways of Looking is a ground-breaking novella of extraordinary resonance. Accompanied by three powerful stories set in Afghanistan, Galway and London, this is a tribute to humanity's search for maning and grace, from a writer at the height of his form.

"Strange and remarkable...Wonderfully captures the exacting, awful mystery of love and the danger of loss" - Guardian
