Have just finished reading a novel, "The Temptation to Be Happy" by Lorenzo Marone.  It is a translation from the original Italian, written in the first person by the main character, a widower in his late 70s who has problematic relationships with his two adult children, and an ongoing on/off affair with his former nurse.  He becomes rather fixated on a young woman in his Naples apartment block who is the victim of domestic abuse. It was very well written, all the more when I discovered the author was a man in his mid 40s.  It comes across as so authentically written by an older person.

Reading another of John Sandford's  Virgil Flowers novels,  "Deep Freeze".  Nothing deep, just an action novel spiced with humor which seems to be Sandford's trademark.  Enjoyable so far.
