Caroline’s Bikini

By (author) Kirsty Gunn

Caroline’s Bikini is the tale of a classic love affair; a swirling cocktail of obsession and imagination.The moment that Evan Gordonstone – a successful middle-aged financier – meets Caroline Beresford – a glamorous housewife, hostess and landlady – he falls into unrequited love, a story as old as Western literature itself. Evan recounts the tale of his infatuation to his friend Emily, and thus begins a hypnotic series of conversations set against the backdrop of West London bars, fuelled in intensity by endless G&Ts. From the depths of midwinter to July’s hot swelter, Evan’s retelling of his passion for Caroline will take him to the brink of his own destruction.
