Drowning in Lake Morez

Drowning in Lake Morez is the story of a couple separated by culture and place. Whenthe narrator, a Lebanese man, falls in love with a French woman, they begin a passionate affair. However their relationship, punctuated by separation, is fraught with difficulties and they struggle to make it work even when they are together. Looking at the larger issue of displacement, the book explores how – in our transitory, modern lifestyle - people often feel caught between different worlds.
