A Landing on the Sun is one of the sweetest and wackiest love stories I've ever read.

I loved "Headlong," which is very funny and clever. Frayn is so various--good in so many different ways--it's hard to say where to start. If you have even the mildest interest in the fine arts, though, "Headlong" is at least one good place.

Frayn's books are often very different from each other. Because of that, if you don't like one, it's worth another. I found "Headlong" wonderful, very funny and sharp, especially if you have any interest in what people now call "the art world," though they usually mean the art market.
