9780099499336: Clara's Tale

Paul, the son of a Resistance fighter murdered in mysterious circumstances, meets Clara on an exchange trip to Bavaria in the 1960s. He is enthralled by the beautiful and self-possessed young woman and her fascination with photography, but as their relationship deepens he learns more about the tragedy that haunts her.

As their paths cross and intertwine in often unexpected ways over the years they each fulfil their own ambitions - Paul becomes a sculptor, she a photographer - but in their work, as in their lives, neither can escape the legay of horrors committed before their birth.

Review:

"This is a story of light and shadow, of forests and clearings, of memory and shame, told in effortless prose, with a beautiful literary intelligence" ( L'Express)

"A powerful novel...beautiful prose which offers acute observations as it reflects on the fragility of life" ( Financial Times)

"A meditation on the nihilism of the 20th century...But it is also, as all good novels must be, a narrative, and one that is gripping - often chilling, but with marvellous moments of redemptive tenderness" ( Scotsman)

Book Description:

A powerful story of love and war, spanning the political events of the second half of the twentieth century, from the author of The Girl from the Chartreuse.
