    Autumn Laing
    Autumn Laing has long outlived the legendary circle of artists she cultivated in the 1930s. Now 'old and skeleton gaunt', she reflects on her tumultuous relationship with the abundantly talented Pat Donlon and the effect it had on her husband, on Pat's wife and the body of work which launched Pat's career. A brilliantly alive and insistently energetic story of love, loyalty and creativity. Autumn Laing seduces Pat Donlon with her pearly thighs and her lust for life and art. In doing so she not only compromises the trusting love she has with her husband, Arthur, she also steals the future from Pat's young and beautiful wife, Edith, and their unborn child.<br /><br />Fifty - three years later, cantankerous, engaging, unrestrainable 85 - year - old Autumn is shocked to find within herself a powerful need for redemption. As she begins to tell her story, she writes, '<i>They are all dead and I am old and skeleton - gaunt. This is where it began</i>...'<br /><br />Written with compassion and intelligence, this energetic, funny and wise novel peels back the layers of storytelling and asks what truth has to do with it. <i>Autumn Laing</i> is an unflinchingly intimate portrait of a woman and her time - she is unforgettable.<br /><br />
