BOOK CLUB READS Top 40 2016 8 FICTION FICTION Sweet Caress: The Many Lives of Amory Clay William Boyd Amory Clay describes her most famous photograph ‘The Confrontation’ as a mis-shot – badly cropped. William Boyd has constructed this novel in a similar way so that the reader experiences the personal and professional life and times of Amory, a photographer, in descriptions of 20th century events at the time they occur and also through a process of editing or cropping from older Amory as she reflects and arranges her past. Well-chosen episodes where Amory experiences the violence of Fascists in pre-WWII London, the military conflict in France and Vietnam are complemented with a selection of Amor y’s photographs. The result is an authentic and visual confirmation of an active, passionate and flawed life. Borrow the e-book now
