Product description


An entertaining account of the couple's 50-year relationship - one that was never tested by the rigours of co-habitation. (THE INDEPENDENT)

The book really takes off, when we come to Natalie's long affair with the portraitist Romaine Brooks... Diana Souhami is almost incapable of writing a clumsy sentence. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

For 50 years... the love of these two women lasted. Now, thanks to Souhami, it lives again. (THE TIMES)

Souhami handles it with a light touch. (SUNDAY TIMES)

Souhami tells their story in lush... prose, which perfectly suits the subjects and their exotic world. (IMAGE MAGAZINE)

Two wealthy lesbians in 1900s Paris lead the jolly, over the top life you expect from the belle epoque. (EVENING HERALD)

Book Description

Seduction, madness, addiction, suicide - this was the bohemian world of Natalie Barney and Romaine Brooks, two pivotal figures in the cultural life of Paris at the turn of the century.
