9780670922116: Seducing Ingrid Bergman

Chris Greenhalgh, screenwriter of the 2009 film Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, captures the love affair between two unforgettable people: Casablanca actress Ingrid Bergman and legendary photographer Robert Capa, in this heart-wrenching novel Seducing Ingrid Bergman. June, 1945. In newly liberated Paris, battle-ravaged photographer Robert Capa is drowning his sorrows. After ten years of recording horror and violence, he longs for for a diversion. Ingrid Bergman has been sent to entertain the troops and when she walks into the Ritz Hotel, Capa is enchanted. From the moment he slips a mischievous invitation to dinner under her door, the two find themselves helplessly attracted. Ingrid, tired of her passionless marriage, and her controlling film studio, is desperate for freedom and excitement. And Capa is willing to oblige. Dinners in cafés he can't afford. Night walks along the Seine. Dancing barefoot in nightclubs. Trysts in hotel rooms. He brings her back to life and she fills the hole inside him. With everything at stake, both Capa and Ingrid are presented with terrible choices. Full of the romantic glamour of 40s Paris and Hollywood, Seducing Ingrid Bergman tells the heart-wrenching story of the secret affair between the iconic Casablanca star and the famous photographer. 'Delightful and engrossing . . . a marvellous piece of writing . . . I read it with huge enjoyment' Barbara Erskine, author of Whispers in the Sand 'Greenhalgh's characters are sharply drawn, in particular the contrast between Bergman's inner turmoil and the slick celebrity seen by the public. Capas's self-image is equally conflicted, but together the two conjure a delicious tale of illicit freedom and, ultimately, thwarted love' Financial Times 'From a jubilant, irresistibly romantic Paris just after World War II, to Hollywood during its golden age, Chris Greenhaugh's Seducing Ingrid Bergman rapturously depicts the doomed love affair of two icons of the twentieth century. Like its protagonists Ingrid Bergman and Robert Capa, this is a book with both a sentimental heart and a soul of grit. I loved it.' Melanie Benjamin, New York Times Bestselling author of The Aviator's Wife. Chris Greenhalgh is the prize-winning author of three volumes of poetry, a novel, and wrote the screenplay for Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, which occupied the prestigious closing slot at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. He lives with his wife and two sons in Sevenoaks. www.chris-greenhalgh.com

From Booklist:

In the summer of 1945, wartime photographer Robert Capa is overjoyed that the European conflict has ended but knows that he will soon be out of a job. While he ponders his next move, the sights and sounds of Paris are more than enough to keep him occupied. After he strikes up an unlikely friendship with the famous Casablanca star, Ingrid Bergman, traveling around Europe to entertain the troops, Robert’s career concerns don’t seem quite as important, and the delicious weight of their secret trysts becomes nearly impossible to handle. Though the world will never know the true details of their affair, Greenhalghconsulted several primary sources while crafting Seducing Ingrid Bergman. This fictionalized account of a very high-profile relationship flits between Robert’s and Ingrid’s innermost thoughts and is written in the present tense, immersing the reader in the passionate, high-risk love affair. Greenhalgh’s success as a screenwriter is on full display, particularly in his fast-paceddialogue and lyrical descriptions of postwar Paris. This heartbreaking story of two lost souls searching for a connection will be of high interest to fans of old-Hollywood glamour and wartime biographies. --Stephanie Turza
