Please consider buying my friend Colette’s book ‘The Panther and the Firebird’.
“Angelo Balerdi is an artist hell-bent on self-destruction. A former morphine addict and society darling amongst affluent Parisian ladies, he hopes his art will be his salvation. Aided by his benefactor Arnaud, and sworn to remain focused on his creativity, Angelo finds a new lease of life.
But will the arrival of the beautiful and deadly Francesca challenge his resolve?
Set in a world of decadence and debauchery, The Panther and the Firebird explores the obsessions and passions of beautiful young things at the turn of the century and introduces a cast of characters for whom art and desire are one and the same.”
It’s more interesting and sexier than ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.
