Archive > Frederic Raphael’s ‘Private Views’ Reviewed in The Lady
Frederic Raphael’s latest novel Private Views has received another positive review, this time in the 18 September issue of The Lady. (Established in 1885, The Lady is, by a considerable margin, Britain’s longest-running weekly women’s magazine). Rebecca Wallersteiner writes the following:
Full of twists and turns, Frederic Raphael’s novel is a darkly erotic love story about a mysterious artist, Katya Lowell.
Dedicated to his daughter Sarah, an artist who died aged 41, the book has a painting of hers on the cover. Beautiful and cool, Katya attracts obsessive lovers: Aristocrat banker Charlie Marsden and multimillionaire from Essex Jarvis Green. But instead she is drawn to depraved low-life predators, who have no interest in her art.
Original but also dark and disturbing, it perfectly captures the decadence of the 1970s London art world.
