Description
BAB0220150922'Sweet Caress: The Many Lives of Amory Clay', the new novel from bestselling author William Boyd, follows one remarkable woman through the decades of the twentieth century.
In 1915, Amory's uncle unknowingly sets her life on its course when he gives her a Kodak Brownie No. 2 as a present for her seventh birthday, igniting a lifelong passion for photography. Her camera will take her from high society London in the 1920s to the cabaret clubs and brothels of inter-war Berlin; to 1930s New York, the Blackshirt riots in London's East End, and to France and Germany during the Second World War, where she becomes one of the first female war photographers.
She eventually comes to rest on a remote Scottish island, where she drinks, writes and looks back on a personal life that has been just as rich and complex as her professional one. She remembers the men that have been closest to her - her father, her brother, her lovers - irreparably scarred by two world wars, and reflects upon her own experiences of conflict and loss, passion and joy.
William Boyd is the author of fourteen novels including A Good Man in Africa, An Ice-Cream War, Any Human Heart, Restless, Ordinary Thunderstorms, Waiting for Sunrise and Solo. He lives in London and South West France.
