Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Mozart's Women by Jane Glover

Throughout his life Mozart was inspired, fascinated, amused, aroused, hurt, disappointed and betrayed by women; and he appeared equally fascinating to them. But, first and last, Mozart loved and respected women. His mother, his sister, his wife, her sisters, his patrons, his friends, his lovers and his artists all figure prominently in his life. And his experience, observation and understanding of women reappear, spectacularly, in the characters he created in his operas, who constitute yet futher proof of his true genius and phenomenal understanding of human nature.

Reviews

‘Jane Glover has pulled off a coup des livres with her fresh take on Mozart’s life and work…ought to be required reading for practitioners and will equally enlighten the most casual listener’ John Allison, Sunday Telegraph

‘Readable, informative and moving…Glover neatly and satisfyingly ties up the loose ends in the story of the genius whose most astonishing musical miracles were achieved in his all-too-brief adulthood. Her passion for the music shines through this touching, vividly told story’ Hugh Canning, Sunday Times
