LoveReading View on Paper Moon

This is a beautifully composed literary love story set just after World War II and told partly in flashback of the war itself and the eventful and traumatic time inflicted on the lives of the two main characters, which strain their relationship to breaking point and force them apart. The writing style is lucid and subtle, and vividly conveys the complexities of the characters' motivations.

Paper Moon Synopsis

Winner of The Andrea Badenoch Fiction Award.
 
The passionate love affair between Spitfire pilot Bobby Harris and photographer's model Nina Tate lasts through the turmoil of World War Two, but is tested when his plane is shot down. Disfigured and wanting to hide from the world, Bobby retreats from Bohemian Soho to the empty house his grandfather has left him, a house haunted by the secrets of Bobby's childhood, where the mysteries of his past are gradually unravelled and he discovers that love is more than skin deep.

Following on from The Boy I Love, Marion Husband's highly acclaimed debut novel, Paper Moon explores the complexities of love and loyalty against a backdrop of a world transformed by war.
