This is an auction for LUCCA by Jens Christian Grondahl.

“Lyrical, profound, and beautifully written, Grondahl's latest book examines the nature of love and lust and how the quest for both impacts individual lives. The central character in this poignant story is Lucca, a promising young actress. Lucca's father deserted the family when Lucca was quite young, and in a classic case of seeking the love her father denied her, the adult Lucca becomes involved in numerous affairs, each one ending badly. Finally, she meets talented playwright Andreas Bark, marries him, and has his child. But after several years of marriage, Andreas tells Lucca he has met someone else, and in despair, she drives down the wrong side of the motorway and is hit head-on by a truck. The accident blinds her, and it is in the hospital where she is recovering that she meets Robert, a doctor still suffering after his recent divorce. As Robert oversees Lucca's care, he becomes involved not only in mending her body but in helping mend her shattered spirit. Grondahl, one of Denmark's most celebrated authors, has written a thoughtful, provocative, compelling, emotionally gripping story. An absolute must for every thinking reader.”
