The Artist's Widow: A Novel
The Artist's Widow is the story of the good, the bad and the untalented. It begins on a hot August evening in Mayfair, at a private viewing of the "Last Paintings" of John Crane. Among those present are Crane's widow, Lyris, also a painter; her friend Clovis Ingram, a middle-aged bookseller; Zoe, a beautiful young television filmmaker; and Lyris's great-nephew Nathan Pursey, a boorish young conceptual artist on the make.
None of them realizes that the evening will change their lives forever.
The Artist's Widow is a novel about the nature of the artistic impulse - about friendship, betrayal, courage and cowardice. It is also a London novel, exploring the mental and physical geography of the city in all its variety.
