Still Life tells the story of Ulysses Temper, a young British solider and one-time globe-maker, and Evelyn Skinner, a sexagenarian art historian and possible spy.
It’s 1944 and in the ruined wine cellar of a Tuscan villa, as the Allied troops advance and bombs fall around them, the two meet and share an extraordinary evening together.
The story moves from the Tuscan Hills to the smog of the East End, unveiling a sweeping, mischievous, novel about beauty, love, family and fate.
“A beautiful, big-hearted, richly tapestried story of people brought together by love, war, art, flood… and the ghost of E.M. Forster.”
