Product Description

Book Description

Witty yet elegant, Territorial Rights is a celebration of human imperfection and complexity, with as many shifting identities, wardrobe changes, and sumptuous settings as a comic opera.

Product Description

The greatest Scottish novelist of modern times . . . my admiration for Spark's contribution to literature knows no bounds' Ian Rankin

Robert wants nothing more than to become a serious art historian. But his hopes for an academic life are put on hold when he flees from London to Venice to escape one lover and seek out another: the enigmatic Bulgarian refugee Lina Pancev. In the baffling maze of canals and winding streets where reality shifts and changes like reflections on water, Robert encounters a grand carnival of lust, lies, blackmail, cocktail parties and regicide. As he chases Lina, his heart's desire, the city provides a priceless education in love, art and beauty.
