The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch

Anne Enright

Beautiful Irishwoman Eliza Lynch became briefly, in the 1860s, the richest woman in the world. The book opens in Paris with Eliza in bed with Francisco Solano Lopez- heir to the untold wealth of Paraguay. The fruit of their congress will be extraordinary, and will send her across the Atlantic on the regal voyage to claim her glorious future in Ascuncion. With the lavish imaginative richness of Marquez and the crazed panoramic sweep of Herzog, THE PLEASURE OF ELIZA LYNCH is a bold and brilliantly achieved novel about sex, beauty and corruption and the end of the old world.
