The calligrapher
Edward Docx
Adult Fiction DOCX

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

Summary: A modern tale of sexual mores and city life, Edward Docx's brilliant debut is a witty novel of spurned lovers, elaborately planned seduction, plotted revenge, and surprising secrets. Jasper Jackson is a rapacious heartbreaker who is greatly overdue for a reckoning. He is also a passionate, charming, sophisticated young Londoner, well versed in life's finer enjoyments -- art and wine, great food and engaging friendships -- who happens to eke out his stylish existence in the improbable vocation of calligraphy. While working on a commission to transcribe the love poetry of John Donne, he glimpses an alluring woman in the courtyard outside his window. Madeleine is in every way his match -- sexy, intelligent, and, above all, elusive. But his mission to seduce her marks the start of his unraveling. A contemporary comedy of manners for fans of Nick Hornby or Julian Barnes, The Calligrapher dazzles with its acute observations about truth and deceit in the eternal battle of love.
