Om The Songwriter

New York, 1916. Monroe Simonov, a song-plugger from Brooklyn, is in love with a Ziegfeld Follies dancer who has left him for California. Inez Kennedy, a fashion model in a department store, has just one season remaining to find a wealthy husband before she must return to the Midwest. Ana Denisova, a glamorous political exile, gives lectures and writes letters while she waits for the Russian people to overthrow their Tsar. Then America joins the war, jazz sweeps the city's dance floors, the old order is swept away by newly minted millionaires and the entire nation is gripped by the Red Scare. Although the world is changing faster than they could ever have imagined, Monroe, Inez and Ana discover that they are still subject to the tyranny of the heart. In this richly atmospheric and deftly plotted novel, the paths of these three central figures cross and re-cross, leaving a trail of passion, infidelity and betrayal, and hurtle towards an explosive climax.

'Decadent, tantalising' 'A big, plush velvet cushion of a book' 'Bold, solid and clever' 'A transfixing concerto of intrigue, passion, desperation, intrigue, love, heroism and tragedy' 'Intricately plotted and filled with memorable characters, Beatrice Colin's gorgeous novel is a lush delight that perfectly captures the spirit of Berlin . . . compelling' 'This absorbing read is both well researched and plushly written' 'This gripping and darkly seductive novel showcases the glitter and darkness of the Weimar Republic' 'An exceptional novel . . . Colin is an entertaining storyteller' Praise for The Luminous Life of Lilly Aphrodite: 'The storytelling is masterful and the language magical' 'Colin's descriptions of Berlin are as vibrant and alive as Lilly and the rich cast of characters around her'
