The Necessary Angel

C.K. Stead
AUD $32.99

A dazzling new novel from the award-winning Karl Stead.

A beautifully written, carefully observed novel that takes you to the heart of contemporary Paris and into a world of books and witty conversation.

With a surprising twist at the end, this book is gripping and hugely satisfying. It's a story of people grappling with love and fidelity; a story about the importance of books; a commentary on living in complex modern-day Europe; and a page-turning mystery.

The Necessary Angel
is a sophisticated novel that shows C.K. Stead writing at the height of his powers.
