The shock of finding a physical resemblance between Gorsky and Natalia’s daughter leaves Nick stunned. Read by Philip Arditti.
Chelski: a London home for Russian wealth. Gorsky: a story about beauty, money and books.
On a sweltering May afternoon, Nick and Gorsky are invited to join the Summerscales, and Gery, at their rooftop pool. The shock of discovering the physical resemblance - identically misshapen little toes between Gorsky and Natalia Summerscale’s ten year old daughter Daisy leaves Nick stunned.
Tom Summerscale, already embroiled in an affair himself, is clearly furious. Finally cards are placed on the table in a bar in Notting Hill. But the drama has only just begun to come to a head.
