Description

From the author of The Gustav Sonata The bestselling and much-loved classic from Orange Prize-winning Rose Tremain, Restoration introduces us to the young Robert Merivel and his rise and fall through glittering seventeenth-century society. Shortlisted for the Booker prize it has been described as ‘triumphant’ (Sunday Telegraph) and ‘dazzling’ (New York Review of Books). When a twist of fate delivers an ambitious young medical student to the court of King Charles II, he is suddenly thrust into a vibrant world of luxury and opulence. Blessed with a quick wit and sparkling charm, Robert Merivel rises quickly, soon finding favour with the King, and privileged with a position as ‘paper groom’ to the youngest of the King’s mistresses. But by falling in love with her, Merivel transgresses the one rule that will cast him out from his new-found paradise… Over a million Rose Tremain books sold ‘A writer of exceptional talent … Tremain is a writer who understands every emotion’ Independent I ‘There are few writers out there with the dexterity or emotional intelligence to rival that of the great Rose Tremain’ Irish Times ‘Tremain has the painterly genius of an Old Master, and she uses it to stunning effect’ The Times ‘Rose Tremain is one of the very finest British novelists’ Salman Rushdie ‘Tremain is a writer of exemplary vision and particularity. The fictional world is rendered with extraordinary vividness’ Marcel Theroux, Guardian
