Product description


What could be more reassuring in troubling times than a new William Boyd novel? Trio is immensely readable, its descriptions full of light and colour, its humour spot on, its mood a perfect mix of frolicsome and melancholySunday Telegraph

An absorbing novel about lives spiralling out of control and the drastic measures required to right them


The characters are wonderfully written and I loved escaping to the gossipy world of the film setGood Housekeeping, Book of the Month

Boyd keeps the plot racing along, yet for all the twists, the real delight is in William Boyd's wry portrait of a bygone age . . . Boyd's usual sure touch is evident throughout this tender, gently comic work ― Independent

One of our best contemporary storytellers. . . Trio embraces comedy, tragedy and redemption. It succeeds impressively because of its dramatic, often sensational, revelationsSpectator

I am a huge fan of William Boyd and the tender way he writes about the flaws and frailties of his characters. Trio is his best novel in yearsRed, The Best Books to Read this October

Reading William Boyd's Trio is like shrugging on a worn leather jacket on the first brisk morning of autumn: cosy but cool . . . He has enormous fun with the worlds - and egos - of page and screenThe Times

Enormous fun . . . Boyd's characters are vibrant, his prose elegant, comedy excellent: the result is a book that's compassionate and compelling ― Tatler

Boyd's writing is as fluent as ever but it's the ideas pulsing beneath the surface that distinguish TrioFinancial Times

Trio is an intricate set of variations on the idea of alternative selves, well beyond the title's trio, unobtrusively elegant in its formal beautyNew Statesman Books of the Year

Book Description

From one of Britain's best-loved writers, the story of three people living secret lives in the tumultuous summer of 1968
