Krauss - "The History of Love" SPOILER WARNING

I have just completed the audiobook the "The History of Love". I was left confused on one issue. At the end of the book, while in Central Park, Leo states that the truth was that Bruno was dead and died in Poland many years ago.

Does this mean that Bruno was just a memory. That his touchstone to everyday life current life was in his imagination, not real, not his neighbor? If so, I am really bummed!

Oh yes, I realize that i will need to purchase the print version of this book and savor the more beautiful passages at liesure, rather than in audiobook form.

Thanks to anyone that takes the time to answer.

i think bruno may have been leos invisiblity sheild. for me this is the most unbearably poignant aspect of the book. perhaps, like leo, it is better to cling to ambiguity...

I believe that the character was very real..choose whatever pleases you. However, I must say that the style of reading by the female on the recorded version was COMPLETELY off the mark in every sense while the male was OUTSTANDING and very very believable. I only wish the female part had been read by another. I rarely enjoy an audio book--I prefer the printed page--it's difficult to match voices and styles to stories.
