A producer. A novelist. An actress.It is summer in 1968, the year of the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. While the world is reeling our trio is involved in making a rackety Swingin' Sixties British movie in sunny Brighton. All are leading secret lives.As the film is shot, with its usual drastic ups and downs, so does our trio's private, secret world begin to take over their public one. Pressures build inexorably - someone's going to crack. Or maybe they all will.From one of Britain's bestselling writers comes an exhilarating, tender novel that asks the vital questions- what makes life worth living? And what do you do if you find it isn't?

Reviews for Trio

Simply the best realistic storyteller of his generation * Sebastian Faulks * Boyd on form is the ultimate in immersive fiction, and Love is Blind is Boyd at the top of his game . . . magnificent * Daily Telegraph * One of Britain's finest living writers * Sunday Express * A work of astonishing ventriloquistic virtuosity * Sunday Telegraph on Any Human Heart * He has probably written more classic books than any of his contemporaries * Sunday Times * An elating read * Peter Kemp, Sunday Times * Boyd is back on a form few of his contemporaries can match * Observer on Love is Blind * I am a huge fan of William Boyd and the tender way he writes about the flaws and frailties of his characters. Trio is his best novel in years * Red, The Best Books to Read this October * The characters are wonderfully written and I loved escaping to the gossipy world of the film set * Good Housekeeping, Book of the Month *
