William Boyd’s masterful new novel tells, in a series of intimate journals, the story of Logan Mountstuart—writer, lover, art dealer, spy—as he makes his often precarious way through the twentieth century.

This is a beautiful book. The attention to detail. The many footnotes including those for fictional characters. The number of real historical people he comes across during his life. It's a book you don't want to put down.
