A love story set in Romania and England. Kitty Crozier wakes up in a hospital ward and finds a stranger looking down at her. Thus begins the most important, most demanding, most exhilarating relationship of Kitty’s life. Her lover’s name is Virgil Florescu, a poet who has escaped from Ceausescu’s Romania. As their liaison deepens, more is revealed of their previous lives and of their different families. Both Kitty and Virgil have unusual fathers: Kitty’s is a phenomenally accomplished philanderer, while Virgil’s has changed his political allegiances from left to right and back again in order to ensure his survival.


The book is in very good condition, the dustwrapper a little worn to the edge edges but is otherwise good.
