The protagonist of this World War II novel is a prisoner of the German army in France. In order to keep himself sane while denying the charges and absorbing the beatings of his captors, Richard Temple conducts a minute examination--one might almost call it a prosecution--of his own life.Temple escapes from a blighted childhood and his widowed, alcoholic mother thanks to an artistic gift, the one thing of value he has to his name. His life as a painter in London of the '30s is cruelly deprived. In order to eat, he squanders this one asset by becoming a forger of art, specializing in minor works by Utrillo. He is rescued by the love of a beautiful and wealthy woman, and it is the failure of this relationship and the outbreak of war that propel him into the world of espionage.… (més)

I really like Patrick O'Brian's historical fiction series about the British navy (Master and Commander is the first book of the series), so I had high hopes for this unknown title. I found the main character, Richard Temple, to be whiny and unappealing. After the first 5 chapters, I am giving up on this one.... ( )

Are the conditions for art found only in a kind of imprisonment? Richard Temple is a well-realised character reflecting on his life in a cell tortured as a SOE agent in WW2. This is a classic tale of an outsider struggling to become an painter in the class-bound society of 1930s England.

I have not encountered Patrick O'Brian before. His seems to be a dark vision, perhaps Romantic, in the sense that art comes from suffering, and suffering is to be endured.
