Sex and Stravinsky

Trapido, Barbara

From far and wide, the different characters are all drawn together; drawn to Jack's place. In its mix of people from different spheres, the story throws up the complexity, cruelty and richness of the global world while, as a sequence of personal stories, it is a masquerade in which things are not always what they seem

'Her readers hold her in desperate affection and her fiction inspires an almost compulsive desire to share … A seductive writer'
Libby Brooks, Guardian||'Her fiction snares from the first page, its plot machinations skilfully veiling a darker pulse'
Joanna Briscoe||'Barbara Trapido's writing is so sparklingly clear and witty that it can be a shock to realise how strong an undertow runs beneath the surface'
Helen Dunmore||'I love Barbara Trapido and I adore her books'
Carol Shields
