Description & Details

Albany Park | Paperback Description

Sensual, vivid and sometimes shocking, Albany Park is the story of Patrice Chaplin's youthful years: from a grey wartime childhood to exhilarating and dangerous adventures in Europe and an romantic infatuation that came about in a sun-drenched Catalonian city. Patrice and Beryl, teenagers in the 1950s, live in Albany Park, a London suburb. Life is full of make-up, boys, trad jazz and Soho nightclubs; dreams are of Hollywood. Leaving behind dead-end jobs, they hitchhike across Spain, dressed in the alternative street fashions of the day: white lipstick, dangle earrings, drainpipe trousers. Their path leads to the ancient city of Girona and the charismatic poet, Jose Tarres. For Patrice it is a homecoming - a rebirth that will mark the end of a friendship and the beginning of a lifetime's obsession. Patrice is enchanted by Jose, but there are shadows on the sunlit days - a possessive mother, mysterious absences, rumours of women and whispers of espionage. With plans to elope seemingly aborted, she finds herself alone in Paris, taking work as a showgirl, arrested as a vagrant and escaping unwanted sexual advances. Only years later, returning to Girona as a writer, does she finally learn the truth about the enigmatic Jose, the first and true passion of her life.
