Picasso's LoversJeanne Mackin
A vivid reimagination of the women drawn into Pablo Picasso's charismatic orbit, for readers of The Paris Wife and Mrs Hemingway.
Paris, 1923. The city is a Bohemian paradise for beautiful and wealthy foreigners seduced by the promise of a different life. Pablo Picasso is already famous, and anything seems possible in the name of art.
New York, 1953. For aspiring journalist Alana Olson, there's always been something about Picasso. Her fascination leads to a series of intimate interviews with Sara Murphy and Irene Legut - two women from Picasso's once-vibrant French social circle.
But as Alana is pulled deeper into the glamorous and tragic stories of the past, she begins to uncover what really lies beneath the canvas - and a disturbing convergence with her own life that bring her closer to Picasso, and those who loved and loathed him, than she ever could have imagined.
