Ocean Sea by Alessandro Baricco

In this lyrical and atmospheric novel, the lives of several characters converge at a remote seaside inn, where the ocean serves as a backdrop to their intertwined stories. The narrative weaves together the tales of a cast that includes a grieving widower, a troubled artist, and a mysterious woman, among others, each drawn to the sea for different reasons. The sea itself becomes a central character, representing the vast and unknowable depths of human emotion and experience. Through poetic prose and philosophical musings, the novel explores themes of love, loss, and the eternal quest for meaning in a world that is both beautiful and cruel.
