Based on actual characters and events, Rupert Thomson’s Never Anyone But You is the gripping story of two female surrealist artists and lovers, Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, who campaigned against Nazi occupation. Living in occupied Jersey at the outbreak of war, their ability to look like harmless sisters provided a cover for acts of subversive resistance.
“A novel of tremendous beauty… A wonderful achievement” (Sarah Waters);
“It’s the strongest and most original novel I’ve read for a long time” (Philip Pullman).
Rupert Thomson will discuss the sources of his inspiration with art historian and biographer Frances Spalding
