No Dust Jacket Used-Acceptable.
From the Publisher
''There is no such thing as autobiography, there is only art and
lies''. Set in a London of the near future, its three principal
characters, Handel, Picasso and Sappho, separately flee the city
and find themselves on the same train, drawn to one another through
the curious agency of a book. Stories within stories take us
through the unlikely love affairs of one Doll Sneerpiece, an 18th
century bawd, and into the world of painful beauty where language
has the power to heal. Art & Lies is a question and a
quest: How shall I live?
