Art needs a sense of lack to bring about its own effects; where there is no feeling of need to make up a shortfall, there will be no work. Alright I said, I'll try... This is how Emily Stuart opens the intricately involved account of a classic love affair that becomes Caroline's Bikini: a tale of hope, passion, and the power of the imagination. For they say, the story of love or, rather, falling in love is timeless, and that unrequited love is the most passionate of all. It's certainly a narrative that is, in its own curious and enticing way, as old as Western literature itself. The moment Emily's friend Evan Gordonstone, a successful middle-aged financier, meets the glamorous Caroline Beresford at Richmond home, we are immediately immersed a whole new kind of world. Thus begins a hypnotic series of intense conversations set against the beguiling backdrop of West London's bars, fuelled by liberal G&Ts. From early winter to July's hot swelter, Emily narrates Evan's passion for Caroline - a former horsewoman and PR expert, and now mother, hostess, housewife and landlady to the brink of his own destruction
