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.
