In a brasserie just off the Boulevard St Germain, a distinguished novelist watches, entranced, the motions of a young woman's hands folding a restaurant bill into a paper boat.

This passing observation - slim fingers against a white linen tablecloth - provides the springboard for a compelling story of desire and jealousy in Brina Svit's explosive novel, Con Brio.

The novelist's orderly life vanishes the instant he admires this strange woman's hands; the discipline of forty fruitful years dissolves. On an impulse, he proposes.

'Con Brio consumes us like a bout of fever -disconcerting and brilliant. Give it to your best friend' - Elle magazine
