A Book for All and None

Clare Morgan

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A beautiful, haunting literary debut from an extraordinary talent and future prize-winner.

Raymond is a withdrawn Oxford don and Nietzsche expert who discovers love and life when he meets Beatrice, who is considerably younger than him and works on Virginia Woolf.

Walter is Beatrice's alpha-male husband, a power-hungry, philandering construction mogul who makes suspicious deals in the Middle East. And around this captivating trio, there is the mystery of a rumoured link between Friedrich Nietzsche and Virginia Woolf...

Every single strand is fascinating and fully realised and yet Clare Morgan somehow manages to weave them together into a dazzling, thought-provoking whole.

Praise for A Book for All and None

  • This intensely academic novel is stuffed to bursting with good things... Past and present are very neatly plaited together. - The Times

  • A formidable debut. - Independent on Sunday

  • A wonderfully constructed edifice; ideas, possibilities, emotions, dreams bounce and echo from one strand to another, creating a subtle meditation on the limitations of and the potential for love and transcendence. - Tim Pears, Oxford-based author
