Nevertheless, Craig's bardlike command of the story doesn't waver, and she masterfully conjures the poetic beauty of the Tuscan countryside, making Love in Idleness a perfect read for a summer vacation — or for those in need of one.

"In a Dark Wood,'' British writer Amanda Craig's fourth novel, is narrated by Benedick Hunter, a 39-year-old, recently divorced, out-of-work actor struggling with failure and tottering on the precipice of suicide.
When Benedick prepares to leave the house he had lived in with his ex-wife and their two young children, he finds a collection of fairy tales written and illustrated by his mother, Laura Hunter, herself a suicide when Benedick was 6 and now a posthumously famous children's author.
These stories send Benedick on a "hunt" _ through London and then, with his son, to his mother's birthplace of South Carolina _ to learn more about her, her writing, the reasons for her suicide, and the roots of his own plight.
