About “Paris, a novel” by Rupert Rushbrooke:
Miles has left his public school fractionally on the early side, after an incident involving a bottle of Green Chartreuse, or at least what was left of it, and is now determined to leave home and make his way in the world of 1980s London.
But his real ambition is to play blues piano in the 1960s or earlier, in Paris, or Chicago or Berlin, and the fulfilment of this unlikely, if poetic, dream is further complicated by other factors that are currently hidden deep within him, and of which he has no idea as the story begins.
“Rupert Rushbrooke has given us a lively, witty and always superbly engrossing latter-day pilgrim’s progress to enjoy in Paris, and I thoroughly recommend it.” Christopher Sandford, best-selling biographer.
