Rate this:
The acclaimed author ofThe Society of Othersreturns with a beautifully crafted and intellectually stimulating novel about the nature of love, its elusiveness and, most of all, the universal human need to find it. Bron is a thirty-year-old writer living in London, a seemingly incurable heartbreaker and dodger of commitment. He is fascinated by the symbolist painter Paul Marotte and has made the artist the centre of a book he is writing about love at first sight. On a visit to a friend's country house, Bron encounters the beautiful, enigmatic Flora, and suddenly his book takes on a completely new, intensely personal dimension. His pursuit of Flora takes him to Amsterdam, where a mysterious art collector offers to help him find the object of his desire, and the search for "true love" takes surprising twists. With the touch of a master, Nicholson weaves thought-provoking reflections on art, literature, and human nature and a suspense-filled love story into a novel that touches both the heart and the mind.
