Beautiful Ruins free pdf The Number 1 New York Times Best-seller. Jess Walter's Beautiful Ruins is a gorgeous, glamorous novel set in 1960s Italy and a modern Hollywood studio. The story begins in 1962. Somewhere on a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and views an apparition: a beautiful woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an American starlet, he soon learns, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away in Hollywood, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot searching for the woman he last saw at his hotel fifty years before. Gloriously inventive, funny, tender and constantly surprising, Beautiful Ruins is a novel full of fabulous and yet very flawed people, all of them striving towards another sort of life, a future that is both delightful and yet, tantalizingly, seems just out of reach. "Magic...A monument to crazy love with a deeply romantic heart." (New York Times). "A novel shot in sparkly Technicolor." (Booklist). "Hilarious and compelling." (Esquire). "Beautiful Ruins is a novel unlike any other you're likely to read this year." (Nick Hornby, The Believer).
