Villa America by Liza Klaussman - what our bloggers thought

villa america

Bestselling author Liza Klaussmann's new novel, Villa America, promises to transport the reader to the French Riviera of the roaring twenties - and we've asked ten of our bloggers to give it a read. 

It tells the story of flamboyant couple Sara Wiborg and Gerald Murphy. Together, they created a world of lavish spontaneity and decadence, which drew the likes of Picasso, Ernest Hemmingway and Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald to their home. 

But with the arrival of a young pilot, something changes, and the Murphys' marriage must accommodate an intensity that neither had foreseen...  

You can find out what out bloggers thought of Villa America below - and if you've read the novel do feel free to add your own review.
