Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Dream of Scipio, the acclaimed author of An Instance of the Fingerpost intertwines three intellectual mysteries, three love stories-and three of the darkest moments in human history. United by a classical text called The Dream of Scipio, three men struggle to find refuge from the madness that surrounds them...in the final days of the Roman Empire, in the grim years of the Black Death, and in the direst hours of World War II.

Synopsis:

Set in Provence during the collapse of the Roman Empire in the 5th century, the Black Death in the 14th century, and World War II, this novel follows the fortunes of three men - a Gallic aristocrat, a poet and an intellectual who joins the Vichy government.

Synopsis:

From the author of "An Instance Of The Fingerpost". Literary historical fiction, set in Provence. "Combining the visceral pleasures of a thriller with the more intellectual excitements of a novel of ideas...Beautifully constructed...never less than engrossing" "Sunday Telegraph".
