Fiction

Inspired by the life of Paul Gauguin, THE MOON AND SIXPENCE tells the story of Charles Strickland, a conventional stockbroker who abandons his wife and children for Prais and Tahiti, to live his life as a painter. Whilst his betrayal of family, duty and honour gives him the freedom to achieve greatness, his decision leads to an obsession which carries severe implications. THE MOON AND SIXPENCE is at once a satiric caricature of Edwardian mores and a vivid betrayal of the mentality of genius.
