The Landscape Painter

Arthur Bailey, the landscape painter with a troubled past, lives in post-war England in 1947–48. When Felicity moves into the room next door to him, he immediately develops a fascination with her which quickly turns into obsession as he begins to spy on her and steal items of her clothing.

Arthur’s unsettling relationship 47 years ago with Carwyn, set against the backdrop of the Second Anglo-Boer War being declared in South Africa, is told in haunting detail, as Arthur returns to England having uncovered the damaging truth behind Carwyn’s incestuous betrayal of him with her brother, Christian.

Praise for The Landscape Painter

The landscape of this novel is…captured in a synthesis that is surely life itself – our personal landscapes of entangled relationships, work, the power of sexuality and the external power of circumstance’ – Nadine Gordimer
