Evangelista's Fan by Rose Tremain
Book DescriptionIn Rose Tremain's teasing and brilliant title story, EVANGELISTA'S FAN set in a disturbing dreamlike version of Regency London, a young italian clockmaker contrives a magical means, not only of repairing time, but also of unlocking the mechanism of sexual happiness. This collection demonstrates the enormous range of her talent and imagination. Here is history - Agincourt as seen by the herald who rides between the two camps - alongside such contemporary issues as mortgage debt and medical error. Here are stores set in Cornwall, Corsica, Nashville, Niagara and an unidentified city which conjures up any and every Western European capital. Here are the obstinate dreams of the old and the passionate struggles of the yound; here is heartbreak and humour; and here, above all, is love in its many and varied forms.

Gustav Sonata, Paperback (February 2017)
What is the difference between friendship and love? Or between neutrality and commitment? Gustav Perle grows up in a small town in 'neutral' Switzerland, where the horrors of the Second World War seem a distant echo. But Gustav's father has mysteriously died, and his adored mother Emilie is strangely cold and indifferent to him.

Restoration, Paperback (June 2015)» View all books by Rose Tremain
When a twist of fate delivers an ambitious young medical student to the court of King Charles II, he is suddenly thrust into a vibrant world of luxury and opulence. Robert Merivel rises quickly, soon finding favour with the King, and privileged with a position as 'paper groom' to the youngest of the King's mistresses.
UK Kirkus Review » Refreshingly unpretentious short stories. Some have been published before, but the majority are new, and all are fine examples of Tremain's seemingly limitless imagination and mastery of numerous styles. Here we glimpse into the lives of a solitary, bitter spinster candle-maker in Corsica; an ambitious horologist, 'repairer of time' who is obsessed by what lies behind Evangelista's fan; the astounding awakening of a doctor from her temporary waking coma; and Agincourt as seen by the herald who rides to negotiate between the two camps. Sometimes magical, sometimes startlingly real, this is a powerful, diverse collection. (Kirkus UK)
