Celebrated aerialist Sophie Fevvers would have the world believe she is part woman and part swan, complete with feathered wings that grew as she reached puberty. Journalist Jack Walser is dazzled by Sophie and becomes obsessed with finding out the truth of her identity. He leaves his job to follow her, and a cast of wild circus characters, on fantastical adventures in London, St Petersburg and Siberia.
Autumn book club titles selected by Patricia Piccinini as highlighting key themes in her exhibition 'Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection'.
