This is a pre-loved book in very good condition.
Alphonse, funny, observant and imaginative, is a former musician who has left Brussels with his girlfriend Cat to live near her parents in the buttoned-up rural district of Westhoek. It has open fields, wide, low skies, more World War I graves than almost anywhere in Europe—and one of the highest suicide rates in the western world. Alphonse starts a new life as a handyman. As he paints and decorates the interior of people's homes, he gets to know their complex emotional lives—their affairs, family disturbances, messy divorces, everyday cruelties, and unexpected dreams. But when he, Cat and a client help a group of Afghans and Syrians at a makeshift refugee camp, he learns that not all locals appreciate their work.
