1960. Teenage Erica arrives on Hydra with little more than a bundle of blank notebooks and her grief for her mother. 'she has come to meet her mother's old friend, the charismatic writer Charmian Clift, who with her husband, the brilliant but irascible George Johnston, rules the island's tangled bohemian utopia. With Charmian's help, Erica finds her place on the periphery of this circle of poets, painters and musicians dancing on the edge of social revolution.
And in this circle there forms a triangle :the magnetic,
destructive writer Axel Jensen, his dazzlingly beautiful wife
Marianne, and a young Canadian poet named Leonard Cohen.
br>Burning with the heat and light of Greece, A Theatre for Dreamers is a novel about utopian dreams and innocence lost - and the wars waged between men and women on the battlegrounds of genius.
