Award winning author

With the lavish imaginative richness of Márquez and the crazed panoramic sweep of Herzog's Fitzcarraldo, The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch is a bold and brilliantly achieved novel about sex, beauty and corruption at the end of the old world.

Beautiful Irishwoman Eliza Lynch became briefly, in the 1860s, the richest woman in the world. The book opens in Paris with Eliza in bed with Francisco Solano Lopez – heir to the untold wealth of Paraguay. The fruit of their congress will be extraordinary and will send her across the Atlantic on the regal voyage to claim her glorious future in Ascuncion.

'She writes like a shrewd Irish Marquez.'
The Observer

'Enright [has a] white-knuckle grip on language ... A dazzling circus of words.'
The Guardian

'The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch is as sensuous and polished as an ornate painting.'
Daily Telegraph
