Summary
"A heartwarming novel on friendship, romance, intrigue, and treachery. And cycling. During the summer of 1982, a group of friends--five boys and one girl-- travel to French Provence to climb the legendary Mont Ventoux on their bicycles. A tragic accident claims the life of one of them, the promising young poet Peter. Thirty years later, the old friends return to conquer the mountain and the demons of their past. Ventoux is both a hilarious and insightful portrait of a generation and a stunningly accurate depiction of male friendship. While cycling aficionados will delight in recognizing the mountain as the scene of many classic races, Ventoux in much more--a glorious tragicomedy and homage to the importance of lifelong companionship"--Page [4] of cover
