FROM THE BOOKER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER
The funny and fabulous tale of two twentieth-century misfits and their adventure into European history…
It is 1988, and Jessie, artiste, motormouth, ducker and diver, meets Stanley, angst-ridden banker and boffin. Jessie arrives like a guardian angel and lifts Stanley out of his soul-less life. He ditches his job, and together they set off across Europe. Destination — unknown. Duration — indeterminate. So begins an odyssey which turns into an adventure on the stage of European history featuring Shakespeare’s “dark lady of the sonnets”, Pushkin’s African great-grandfather, the composer Chevalier de St. Georges and other colourful characters from Europe’s past.
