Taking place over the course of a century, acclaimed biographer Michael Holroyd reveals the stories of several loosely connected lives and the Villa Cimbrone in Italy that join them. Beautifully written and full of surprises, the author shines a spotlight on individuals who have been on the periphery of history including Eve Fairfax, a celebrated beauty and model for Rodin, and Violet Trefusis, the lover of Vita Sackville-West. Elegant and witty, A Book of Secrets is a unique book by a gifted writer.
