We are delighted that one of Britain’s best-loved and bestselling writers, William Boyd will be here to discuss his latest novel. This intimate, yet panoramic novel set across the nineteenth century is set to be the must-read book of the year.

The novel follows Cashel Greville Ross: a man who experiences myriad lives: both joyous and devastating, with years of luck and unexpected loss. Moving from County Cork to London, from Waterloo to Zanzibar, Cashel seeks his fortune across continents in war and in peace. He faces a terrible moral choice in a village in Sri Lanka as part of the East Indian Army. He enters the world of the Romantic Poets in Pisa. In Ravenna he meets a woman who will live in his heart for the rest of his days. As he travels the world as a soldier, a farmer, a felon, a writer, a father, a lover, he experiences all the vicissitudes of life and, through the accelerating turbulence of the nineteenth century, he discovers who he truly is. This is the romance of life itself, and the beating heart of The Romantic.
