From the ephemeral liaison of the milliner and the musician, Greenhalgh has elicited a fine, entrancingly poetic novel (Peter Conrad, Observer)
Chris Greenhalgh brilliantly conveys the atmosphere of tension and sultry passion (Sunday Telegraph)
Impressively realised (Guardian)
Greenhalgh writes convincingly, often sympathetically, about the sensual excitement that briefly unites the pair (Sunday Times)
An intense account of the brief, electric affair between Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky...Period detail drips off the pages (Sydney Morning Herald)
Perfume, music and passion combine in a portrait of the little-known affair of the century. A sophisticated must-read for aficionados of Chanel's style and Stravinsky's music, full of the romance of Paris and the more exotic appeal of Russia; the heady aroma of No. 5 perfume and the rhythms of the 'Rite of Spring'.See all Product Description

I confess to not finishing this book - life's too short, and with so much more reading to do.
The chronology at the end was the best bit of this book, which is why I give it one star.
