About the book
In Fascination Boyd shows his brilliance of the form as these stories range widely through time and space. In a dazzling array of styles and narratives we move from 1930s Germany to Los Angeles in the Second World War, from contemporary Oxford to 19th century Russia. Whether in London or Amsterdam. Eastbourne or a Normandy village these stories explore and expose the fraught, funny, absurd, poignant and lovelorn lives of their many and varied characters.
Reviewed by Romsey Library Reading Group:
Promising beginnings, but stories not rounded well and therefore there was a lack of satisfaction. Well written. Disappointing when compared to his other books.
