One of the most beguiling storytellers on either side of the Atlantic delivers a luminous new collection whose 14 stories are a series of variations on the theme of love- and its shady cousin lust. A film director's journal becomes an unintended chronicle of his deepening and ruinous obsession with a leading lady (" Notebook No. 9" ). While flying business class, a well-behaved English architect feels the chill onset of an otherworldly visitation that will shatter his family and career (" A Haunting" ). An unhappy young boy, neglected by both his father and adulterous mother, finds an unexpected friend in an elderly painter (" Varengeville" ). Wise, unsettling, humane, and endlessly surprising, "Fascination" lives up to its title on every page, while confirming William Boyd's stature as a writer of incandescent talent.
