Synopsis

Set across four decades, from the 1940s to the early 80s, Still Life is a beautiful, big-hearted, richly tapestried story of people brought together by love, war, art, flood... and the ghost of E.M. Forster. By the bestselling, prize-winning author of When God was a Rabbit and Tin Man


It's 1944 and in the ruined wine cellar of a Tuscan villa, as the Allied troops advance and bombs fall around them, two strangers meet and share an extraordinary evening together.


Ulysses Temper is a young British solider from the East End of London. Evelyn Skinner is a middle-aged spinster, an art historian who has come to Italy to salvage paintings from the ruins and relive her memories of the time long ago when she met EM Forster and had her heart stolen by an Italian maid in a particular Florentine room with a view.


These two unlikely people find kindred spirits in each other and Evelyn's talk of truth and beauty plants a seed in Ulysses mind that will shape the trajectory of his life over the next four decades.


And so begins Sarah Winman's gorgeous, captivating new novel, Still Life. It's a novel filled with the magic of When God Was a Rabbit and the extraordinary compassion and tenderness of her Costa-nominated Tin Man.


Moving from the Tuscan Hills, to the piazzas of Florence and the smog of the East End, Still Life is a sweeping, moving, mischievous and richly peopled novel about beauty and love, fate and coincidence. It' a story about the things that make life worth living, and the things we're prepared to die for.
