I wish I had more time to write and go into details of how wonderful Bel Canto is—and how in love I fell with Ann Patchett’s magical writing when I first read it a couple of years ago.

- What is it about Roxane Coss that makes such an impression on the other hostages and the terrorists? Is it merely that she is famous? How does her singing and the music relate to the story?
- Roxane and Mr. Hosokawa speak different languages and require Gen to translate their conversations. Do you think it’s possible to fall in love with someone to whom you cannot speak directly?
