Property and Value: The New Age: Part Eight

The eighth in Hugh Hood’s highly praised series The New Age, this engrossing novel is a further instalment in the lives of the Goderich family of Toronto. Matthew Goderich, fast approaching 50, is a freelance art historian, an occupation that enables him to understand the history of his era and to consider the relationship of events and objects in a continuum. On assignment at the Venice Biennale, Matthew encounters Linnet Olcott, a talented British actress who’s on location for a film adaptation of work by Proust. For the first time since his wife left him six years ago, Matthew finds a passionate companion.
