What You Will

A novel by

An intimate portrait of London intellectual life, the breakdown of a marriage and the friendship between two women, 'What You Will' draws the reader into a spellbinding world of beauty and tension.

Gwen, an American painter, lives in London with her English husband, Lawrence, an Oxford don. When Gwen's friend Hilary arrives from New York bruised by a broken engagement, a lost job and an unsuitable love affair, Gwen is determined to find her someone to marry. But will he be another Oxford intellectual, a member of London's bohemia, or a professional from the scandal-ridden New York museum world?

But with Gwen's arrival the bonds of friendship, love, and marriage are severely tested. Pressure builds in the household, affecting Gwen and Lawrence's small son as he struggles to engage with the sophistication and savagery around him.

Tackling deep and unsetttling questions - Are we slaves to our impulses or to one another? Is it possible to have both love and freedom? Can the artist or the intellectual illuminate such questions?, 'What You Will' is a subtly wrought, multi-layered, and hypnotically suspenseful tale about how we handle our most intimate relationships.
