SUMMARY Never Anyone But You READ è Never Anyone But You Rupert Thomson ó 8 READ The true story of a love affair between two extraordinary women becomes a literary tour deforce in this novel that recreates the surrealist movement in Paris and the horrors of the two world wars with a singular incandescence and intimacyIn the years preceding World War I two young women meet by chance in a provincial town in France Suzanne Malherbe a shy seventeen year old with a talent for drawing is completely entranced by the brilliant but troubled Lucie Schwob who comes from a family of wealthy Jewish int. Oh I was really primed to like this one The subject matter is fascinating two real life young women Suzanne Halberde and Lucie Schwob refuse to be tied down to gender identification and expectations Changing their names to Marcel and Claude they reinvent themselves collaborating on avant garde texts and hobnobbing with the glamourous and creative in ParisI know that Rupert Thomson is a gifted writer having read Katherine Carlyle his last book And indeed this one is well written too But I couldn t help but reflect that Mr Thomson seemed shackled by his research material The scenes set in Parks often felt as if I were ingesting a smorgasbord of names from Andre Breton to Philippe Soupault to Louis Aragon and Paul Eluard Without much background into the artists and poets of that time period I felt as if I were an outlier to the scenes rather than a witnessClaude aka Lucy is meant to be the charismatic one in the pair and yet my grasp of her is of someone who is unbalanced the sheer energy of the character doesn t shine through I have little doubt that Mr Thomson researched Claude and Marcel and the time period mightily but I couldn t help but wish that he had listened to his muse and liberated them from the cold facts that comprise their background I wanted to be privy to of their thoughts and feelings rather than their actionsLater as they confront the gathering monstrosities of the German invasion the novel begins to take flight But for me it was a little too late

SUMMARY Never Anyone But You

Never Anyone But You

SUMMARY Never Anyone But You READ è Never Anyone But You Rupert Thomson ó 8 READ Dré Breton and produce provocative photographs that still seem avant garde today In the 1930s with the rise of anti Semitism and threat of fascism they leave Paris for Jersey and it is on this idyllic island that they confront their destiny creating a campaign of propaganda against Hitler’s occupying forces that will put their lives in jeopardyBrilliantly imagined profoundly thought provoking and ultimately heartbreaking Never Anyone But You infuses life into a forgotten history as only great literature can. Like some other reviewers I m not entirely sure of the point of telling this true story of these two strong independent and unconventional women as fiction They are engaging characters but for me their story fell into four parts Their early family connection and subseuent love affair was fascinating and well told Likewise the section where they are trapped on Jersey during the Nazi occupation and find their own subtle means of resistance was suspenseful and cast an interesting light on a lesser known area of the 2nd world war However their period spent living among the artistic and literary community in Paris is somewhat formulaic and consisted of a long list of well and lesser known characters flitting in and out And then the final section after Claude has died tended to drag as she is the interesting of the two women

SUMMARY Never Anyone But You READ è Never Anyone But You Rupert Thomson ó 8 READ Ellectuals They embark on a clandestine love affair terrified they will be discovered but then in an astonishing twist of fate the mother of one marries the father of the other As “sisters” they are finally free of suspicion and hungry for a stimulating milieu they move to Paris at a moment when art literature and politics blend in an explosive cocktailHaving reinvented themselves as Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore they move in the most glamorous social circles meeting everyone from Hemingway and Dalí to An. A very moving story about love but not in a romance kind of way It s about the friendship and love of two girls spanning decades I was personally touched by the self isolation they inadvertently created as I am a bit of a recluse for better or worse Fair warning to those that need a plot that this novel might not be for them as it is a slow pace But if you like human stories then definitely give this a try
