Synopsis

‘A tender, erotic comedy set in a fictitious European city so intricately imagined that you itch to book a weekend break there’ Independent

Felix Dern is a celebrated actor, revered for his talent and his looks. Unbeknownst to those he seduces, he is exceptional in other ways, too. ‘Every woman he dares to sleep with bears his child . . .’

Gifted or cursed, Lix now has six living reminders of what he did, with whom, and all in the pursuit of the elusive dream of love. Set in the beguiling City of Kisses, this seamless novel charts the history of a loving, baffled man in what emerges as a mischievous meditation on eternal sexual conundrums of love, power, parenthood and desire.

‘As a study in love, sex and relationships, Six is as involving and original as anything Crace has written’ Literary Review

‘Ingenious and beautifully written’ Daily Telegraph Books of the Year
