The Luminous Life of Lilly Aphrodite
'Huge, beautiful 2008 novel...there's confidence in its scope and ambition that's very rare indeed in debut novels' (The List )'The novel is full of atmosphere...very convincing" "excellent characterisation...the whole story resonates with life. I Loved it" "Irresistible" "If your book club wants an unusual story with plenty to discuss, then this is the book for them' (New Books )'The storytelling is masterful and the language magical' (Sunday Times )'A transfixing concerto of intrigue, passion, desperation, intrigue, love, heroism and tragedy' (Easy Living )'Intricately plotted and filled with memorable characters, Beatrice Colin's gorgeous novel is a lush delight that perfectly captures the spirit of Berlin ... compelling' (The Gloss )'Colin's descriptions of Berlin are as vibrant and alive as Lilly and the rich cast of characters around her' (Scotland on Sunday )'An exceptional novel . . . Colin is an entertaining storyteller' (Sunday Herald )'Bold, solid and clever' (Herald )'A big, plush velvet cushion of a book' (The List )'Deftly captures the era's sense of frenzied invention and seductive promise. Born on New Year's Eve in 1899, Lilly is the incarnation of this toxic mix of glitter and despair. Over the course of nearly half a century, as troops parade through Berlin and bread lines erupt into riots, she is transformed, almost accidentally, from Tiny Lil, the unwanted baby, to Lidi, one of Germany's most celebrated film stars . . . Colin . . . writes with a supple, whimsical charm. [The Luminous Life of Lilly Aphrodite is] absorbing in its . . . authenticity' (New York Times Book Review )'As moving as it is smart, this tough-minded extravaganza had me from page one . . . a dazzling tale of survival in the urban wilderness' (Emma Donoghue, author of the bestselling SLAMMERKIN )'Written with intelligence and shimmer, [The Luminous Life of Lilly Aphrodite] transports the reader to Berlin in the first part of the twentieth century. Colin's heroine, Lilly Aphrodite, is as rich, alive, and dangerous as the city she inhabits; and as the novel progresses, Berlin's history becomes her own.' (David Ebershoff, author of The Danish Girl and The 19th Wife )'There are few characters as beguiling as the incomparable Tiny Lil. And Colin tells her riveting story--and the enthralling story of pre-war Berlin--breathlessly and triumphantly.' (Jennifer Gilmore, author of Golden Country )'A compelling story well told' (Sun Herald (Australia) )'Decadent, tantalising' (Axis Magazine )'This gripping and darkly seductive novel showcases the glitter and darkness of the Weimar  Republic' (Western Daily Press )'A cartload of tingle-tangle fun' (Bookmunch )'This absorbing read is both well researched and plushly written' (Guardian )'Full of suspense, this is an all-feeling novel, seductively and dramatically told' (Daily Mail )'A sparkling array of Germany's most flamboyant characters ... intelligent, bold and  passionate, this is a beautifully written book' (Good Book Guide )
