Product description

Review

He has probably written more classic books than any of his contemporaries (Daily Telegraph)

Boyd is a brilliant novelist (Observer)

William Boyd is a gifted chronicler of lives both enigmatic and artistic (Mail on Sunday)

One of Britain's best and best-loved storytellers (Sunday Express)

Boyd deals with heavy themes with the lightest touch. We're lucky to have him writing for us (John Sutherland The Times)

Boyd is a gifted and intelligent story-teller (Amanda Craig Independent on Sunday)

Boyd is as good as ever at capturing time and place, and at blurring the line between fact and fiction. A highly enjoyable read (Daily Telegraph on 'Sweet Caress')

From the Inside Flap

A philandering art dealer tries to give up casual love affairs - seeking only passionate kisses as a substitute. A man recounts his personal history through the things he has stolen from others throughout his life. A couple chart the journey of their five year relationship backwards, from awkward reunion to lovelorn first encounter. And, at the heart of the book, a 24-year old young woman, Bethany Mellmoth, embarks on a year-long journey of wishful and tentative self-discovery.

The Dreams of Bethany Mellmoth depicts the random encounters that bring the past bubbling to the surface; the impulsive decisions that irrevocably shape a life; and the endless hesitations and loss-of-nerve that wickedly complicate it. These funny, surprising and moving stories are a resounding confirmation of Boyd's powers as one of our most original and compelling storytellers.
