Description

Staff Pick
Still Life traces the intertwined lives of Ulysses Temper and Evelyn Skinner. From their first meeting in 1940s Tuscany, when he is a young British soldier and she a sexagenarian art historian, to London and Florence, Winman has created a wonderful novel about love, family, fate, but mostly an enduring, life-changing friendship.
My novel of the century!

From the author of When God was a Rabbit and Tin ManStill Life is a big-hearted story of the families we forge and the friendships that make us.

1944, Italy. As bombs fall around them, two strangers meet in the ruined wine cellar of a Tuscan villa and share an extraordinary evening.

Ulysses Temper is a young British soldier, Evelyn Skinner a 64-year-old art historian living life on her own terms. She has come to salvage paintings from the wreckage of war and relive memories of her youth when her heart was stolen by an Italian maid in a particular room with a view. Ulysses’ chance encounter with Evelyn will transform his life – and all those who love him back home in London – forever.

Uplifting, sweeping and full of unforgettable characters, Still Life is a novel about beauty, love, family and friendship.
