About the book:

Sir Edward Elgar is a musical genius and Britain's greatest composer. He was an artist of the first rank, celebrated by critics and the public. But by 1923, at age 66, his talent and the public. But by 1923, at age 66, his talent and drive had dissapated. Widowed and idle, the world he knew had been swept away by the Great War, leaving him oddly weighed down by his own immense reputation, and jealous of the even greater artist he might have been, had it not been for......for what? To find the answer, or perhaps flee from it, Elgar booked passage on an elegant ocean liner bound for South America. Named for his famous composition, Geronitius is the fictive evocation of Elgar's real-life voyage of self-discovery, an exploration of genius and art which earned for James Hamilton-Paterson the Whitbread Prize.
