Description: Oliver Gold, the brilliant, ascetic writer and philosopher has lived quietly and happily for eight years on the outskirts of London as a lodger in 12 Wagner Rise. His sudden decision to marry and move to America precipitates a crisis in this household of women, all of whom owe fierce idiosyncratic allegiance to Oliver and want to save him and their world from an unsuitable, inexplicable match. Yet in the end it is only Bobs. the twelve-year-old who is Oliver's constant companion who knows his dangerous secret: it is from her that Oliver attempts to flee.

In a series or dramatic tableaux unfolding over the course of many years A.N. Wilson threads the dark labyrinths of Wagner Rise and illuminates the tragic consequences of these attachments. With this provocative novel about forbidden love. Wilson has produced a stunning haunting literary work -- a Lolita for our times.
