Gary Barker & THE MUSEUM OF LOST LOVE in Miami

December 2, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Gary Barker will be at BOOKS & BOOKS (Coral Gables location) on Monday, December 2 to read from and discuss his new novel, The Museum of Lost Love.

In Zagreb, a couple discovers a museum that displays mementos of broken relationships. A whirlwind summer of reconnecting with lost pasts follows.

Tyler is in therapy. Katia and Goran are in love. On a summer trip to Zagreb, the couple discovers an unusual museum that displays mementos of broken relationships. Inside, Goran stumbles upon an exhibit that seems to be addressed to him, from a girl he met in a Sarajevo refugee camp at age fourteen. What follows is a whirlwind summer of reconnecting with lost pasts: Goran confronts the youth he lost during the Yugoslav Wars, Katia heads to Brazil to find her roots, and Afghanistan veteran Tyler pours out his soul. Set against alternating backdrops of violent circumstances, this novel is a soulful testament to the resilience of the human heart.

The Daily Mail called it “haunting ….wonderful”  and Kirkus Reviews said: “achingly affecting and archly realistic.”
