Exiled from his university position for an inexcusable blunder, art historian Don Lamb flees to London, a city alive with sex and creativity. There, over the course of a long, hot summer, as he is immersed in the anarchic art and gay scenes of the mid-90s, Don sees his carefully curated life irrevocably changed. But his epiphany is also a reckoning, as his unexamined past is revealed to him in a devastating new light.

Intense and atmospheric, Tiepolo Blue traces Don’s turbulent awakening, and his desperate flight from art into life.

‘Wildly enjoyable . . . A novel that combines formal elegance with gripping storytelling’ Financial Times
‘Dizzying and exciting and unsettling, and beautifully told’ Reverend Richard Coles, Daily Mail
