Review

The sheer joy in Sarah Winman’s storytelling is completely infectious. I’ve loved spending time with this unforgettable cast of characters in extraordinary times and places’ Graham Norton

‘Glorious … This luscious and clever book is at first glance simply a rollicking summer read … It’s a joy to witness several different thoroughly believable models of how lives can be resurrected and changed for the betterThe Times

Winman’s pages teem with boisterous, exuberant life … The novel has verve, charm and tremendous heart; its most poignant scenes, set during the 1966 flooding of Florence, recall the darkest hours of last year’s pandemic’ Sunday Times

‘Exquisite … There are not enough superlatives to contain the magnitude and beauty of this novelSunday Independent

‘In Still Life, [Winman] emerges now as the great narrator of hope’ Helen Cullen, Irish Times

‘Teeming with unforgettable characters and oozing atmosphere, it’s a joyous, summery ode to love, art and poetry’ Hephzibah Anderson, Mail on Sunday

A gorgeous, generous story of kind hearts and kindred spirits redefining the meaning of family and friendship … [A] hopeful, happy, intensely humane novel’ Daily Mirror

Readers will want to prolong the pleasure of Sarah Winman’s beautiful novel Still Life for as long as possible’ Donal Ryan, author of From a Low and Quiet Sea

'Embodies the full generosity of the human spirit. [A] bear-hug of a book’ Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

‘An utterly beautiful story, so generous, rich, deeply moving and filled with hope. Sarah Winman is one of the greatest storytellers of our time’ Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep

4.0 out of 5 stars family, love, beautiful art, freedom
Reviewed in Australia on 13 March 2022

“Beautiful art opens our eyes to the beauty of the world, Ulysses. It repositions our sight and judgement. Captures forever that which is fleeting.”

The story begins in 1944 when two strangers meet in a wrecked wine cellar in a Tuscan villa. Bombs going off around them the two share an extraordinary evening together.

Ulysses was a British soldier and Evelyn was an art historian who came to Italy to salvage paintings from the wreckage. While there she relives the time her heart was stolen by an Italian maid. In those years this was something not accepted by the world.

Evelyn is a straight shooter and while she sees the world in black and white, yet she also see it in every shade possible. Her talk of truth and the beauty the world shaped Ulysses’s life. We follow them through the next four decades from Britain to Tuscany to Florence encompassing family, love, beautiful art, freedom and the end.
