1960. The world is dancing on the edge of revolution, and nowhere more so than on the Greek island of Hydra, where a circle of writers, painters and musicians live, ruled over by Charmain Clift and George Johnston, troubled Queen and King of bohemia.  Within this circle forms a love triangle: it's points the magnetic, destructive writer Axel Jensen,  his dazzling wife Marianne Ihlen, and a young Canadian poet named Leonard Cohen. 
This is a spellbinding novel about utopian dreams and  innocence lost and the wars waged between men and women on the battleground of genius.
