A continuous delight.
- Daily Telegraph

A young boy, a beautiful actress, an elderly aristocrat - troubled desire and tangled emotions flowering against the glowing backgrounds of Southern France, Italy and Paris, in perilous defiance of the barriers of age. Such are the 'aspects of love' in this passionate and unforgettable novel upon which Andrew Lloyd Webber based his musical.

Exquisite evocations of Venice, Paris and the French countryside ... David Garnett invites us to share a short delicious dream.
- Observer

The bittersweet alternations of young love between exaltation and despair are beautifully charted.
- Glasgow Herald

About David Garnett:

Sometimes known by his childhood nickname Bunny, was the son of Edward Garnett, an influential publisher's reader, and Constance Garnett, a translator of Russian classics. He grew up among writers, including the Bloomsbury set. He was married to illustrator Rachel Alice Marshall, who died in 1940, and then to Angelica Bell, daughter of Clive Bell and Vanessa Stephen Bell, when Angelica was born, he admired her day-old beauty and idly wrote to Strachey: "I think of marrying it. When she is 20, I shall be 46 - will it be scandalous?" it was and Vanessa and Duncan weren't pleased. Like many daughters of odd families, Angelica wrote a book Deceived by Kindness.
