9780099441991: The Garden Of The Villa Mollini: And Other Stories

A stunning collection of stories: wide-reaching in subject and setting, each beautifully evoked and brilliantly imagined.

Renowned opera singer Antonio Mollini begins construction on what he hopes will be the most beautiful garden in Italy, unaware that its development will have tragic consequence for both him, and his series of lovers. Elsewhere, a farmer's son has high hopes for his inheritance, a young girl dreams of following in the footsteps of a famous arsonist, and the pressure of the annual Gardening Cup exerts a heavy toll on seventeen-year-old Dougie.

Review:

"Talented to the point of rare originality" ( Independent)

"An expert at conveying the kind of apparently inconsequential detail that might be the moment of definition in someone's life" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"The stories have a strange, fairy-tale quality: the simple, beautiful prose, the sense of inevitability, the use of allusion and metaphor to suggest undercurrents of disturbing portent" (Selina Hastings Daily Telegraph)

"Her talent is at its best" ( Susan Hill)

"A quintessentially English writer - her work has a charm and finesse, a civilised irony" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

Beautifully rejacketed along with Rose Tremain's backlist titles in a stunning series style.
