This is a perfect novel Observer What is the difference between friendship and love? Gustav grows up in a small town in Switzerland, where the horrors of the Second World War seem a distant echo. But Gustavs father has mysteriously died, and his adored mother Emilie is strangely cold and indifferent to him. Gustavs life is a lonely one until he meets Anton. An intense lifelong friendship develops but Anton fails to understand how deeply and irrevocably his life and Gustavs are entwined until it is almost too late… The Gustav Sonata is beautifully rendered, and magnificent in its scope. It glows with mastery Ian McEwan, Sunday Times bestselling author of Atonement. **Shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award 2016** **Longlisted for the Womens Prize for Fiction 2017**
