Description - The Calligrapher by Edward Docx

A gripping story of modern-day love and old-fashioned revenge. He is not quite as clever as he thinks he is. She is smarter than she seems. Jasper thinks that he has found the perfect life. A world-class calligrapher and a serial seducer, he is happily transcribing the immortal Songs and Sonnets of John Donne for his wealthy patron. But when a shameless infidelity catches up with him, things begin to unravel. Worse still, one afternoon the perfect woman turns up beneath his studio window and he realizes that he will have to abandon everything to win her. Brilliantly written, stylish and very funny, The Calligrapher is about the difference between men and women, about deception and honesty, and the timeless pursuit of love.
