By Paul Theroux
A dark, seductive tale of ambition and desire set in Taormina, Sicily.
Aged 60, successful, American painter Gilford Mariner returns to the Golden Hotel, a place he has not visited since he was a young man of twenty.
Back then, he was enchanted by DH Lawrence's poem Snake, and willing to take dangerous risks.
