Why is it so impossible to get a relationship to work between two mature single people, driven by an enormous longing and loudly ticking biological clocks? Especially when they are struck by a totally unexpected passion when they first meet... In alternate chapters, Benny and ⿿Shrimp⿝ tell the story of a love that started by mistake in a village cemetery. She is a childless young widow with a sharp intellect and a home so tidy that even her jam jars are in alphabetical order. He is a gentle, overworked farmer, who fears becoming the village's Old Bachelor. The attraction between them is powerful. But how will she learn to accept that he falls asleep at the opera and has a house full of his mother's embroidered wall hangings, and how could he ever feel at home in her minimalist apartment, bare as a dentist's waiting room? In Benny and Shrimp, Katarina Mazetti brilliantly captures the intensity of a midlife love affair, and the heartbreaking inevitability with which life tends to get in the way.
