    Private banking has always been and will always be a business of secrets and discretion But we ve now entered a new era of transparency between nations and between private institutions and the public that has caused all of that to change This is an odd place to start a review of a lyrical and moving, character driven novel But at the heart of this book are the secrets that sustain us as individuals and that sustain our businesses and support fortunes, and how they also eat us alive.This isn t just a book about a Spanish banker, Jos Mar a lvarez, who comes to terms with his mortality It s about a man coming to terms with his morality his creed and ethos Is he a good man I think he ism ultimately But the reader would have to be charitable about that He has certainly meant well But he has also gone into partnership with narcotics dealers, weapons dealers and tax evaders and built a legacy so tarnished that none of his sons want much part of it.This is a fun book, it explores big issues of personality and society and there are lush descriptions of Spanish life that evoke Hemingway, including salmon fishing adventures, crave inducing meals this is the author of The 100 Foot Journey, after all and a remarkable cameo by Franco.I was fortunate to read this book in gallows, months ago, and am only reviewing it today, from memory I can attest that it s a book that stays with you and that s rare.

    I rarely give 5 stars I woke up thinking about this book after staying up WAY too late to finish it My mind is still swirling with feelings A powerful visual and emotional story with lots of amorphous visions that disappear when you try to touch them Hard to explain What is true What is memory What remains What matters
