The Romantic: Signed Edition (Hardback) William Boyd (author)


Signed Edition


A new “whole life” novel from William Boyd, the author of Any Human Heart.

He is variously a soldier, a lover, a husband, a father, a friend of famous poets, a writer, a bankrupt, a jailbird, a farmer, an African explorer – and many other manifestations – before, finally, he becomes a minor diplomat, a consul based in Trieste (then in Austria-Hungary) where he thinks he will see out the end of his days in well-deserved tranquillity. This will not come to pass…
