9780099436942: The Pleasure Of Eliza Lynch

Beautiful Irishwoman Eliza Lynch became briefly, in the 1860s, the richest woman in the world. The book opens in Paris with Eliza in bed with Francisco Solano Lopez - heir to the untold wealth of Paraguay. The fruit of their congress will be extraordinary, and will send her across the Atlantic on the regal voyage to claim her glorious future in Ascuncion.

With the lavish imaginative richness of Marquez and the crazed panoramic sweep of Herzog's Fitzcarraldo, The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch is a bold and brilliantly achieved novel about sex, beauty and corruption at the end of the old world.

Review:

"She writes like a shrewd Irish Marquez" ( Observer)

"Enright [has a] white-knuckle grip on language... A dazzling circus of words" ( Guardian)

" The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch is as sensuous and polished as an ornate painting" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Wonderfully written...a fascinating episode...which never loses its momentum or its sharpness of focus" ( The Times)

"Richness, texture, irony and razzle-dazzle are underpinned by a probing irony and a finely tuned historical sense... The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch is a star turn: what on earth will she do next?" ( Financial Times)

Book Description:

'A luscious read' Independent
