A beautifully written novel with wonderful descriptive prose. The real bonus is that MIRA now include a Read All About It section at the back with questions for book groups notes on what inspired the novel and much, much more. A lovely book to get lost in.

Synopsis

Twilight In Venice by Steven Carroll

Lucy McBride is roused from her slumber by the sound of classical music coming from the stereo. It is a life changing moment and she devotes herself to the study of the cello. Her fascination leads her to Fortuny, the master cellist who first enchanted her with his music. Thus begins the ill-fated affair which began many years before.

About the Author

Steven Carroll was born in Melbourne and grew up in Glenroy. He went to La Trobe University and taught English in schools before playing in bands in the 1970s. After leaving the music scene he began work as a playwright and became a theatre critic. Now a full-time novelist and reviewer, he has twice been short-listed for the prestigious Miles Franklin Literary Award - the richest literary prize in Australia.
