The Page Turner
Paul Porterfield's dreams of becoming a concert pianist are spurred on when he acts as a page turner at a recital given by the brilliant, temperamental Richard Kennington. Months later, whileon holiday with his pushy mother in Rome, Paul meets Richard again. Their earlier attraction develops into an intense affair which is abruptly ended by Richard's return to America. Embittered, Paul throws himself into his studies at music school but soon realises that he cannot be just a page turner all his life.
With artful storytelling, wrenching honesty and arch humour, David Leavitt reveals the bittersweet truths of strained relationships and failed ambitions in his finest novel to date.
A beautifully written, elegant story ... perfect (TIME OUT)Gripping ... Leavitt has always been an erotic and erudite writer but in THE PAGE TURNER his elegance has acquired a greater emotional depth.Bravo (EVENING STANDARD)Shrewdly insightful ... Leavitt's deceptively easy style covers a lot of ground with seemingly little effort (GAY TIMES)Moving and thought-provoking (LITERARY REVIEW)
