  The arrival of Madame Solario, a woman with a whiff of scandal, great beauty, and a wardrobe of individual effects which Huntingdon describes in frankly mind- numbing detail, even for those of us with a passing interest in clothes of the period, changes the atmosphere.   >37 Heaven-Ali: I've got Madame Solario and looking forward to reading it >39 LisaMorr: You have to love McMurtry The book has been banned and copies are mysteriously appearing in the lending stock of the library and being borrowed by readers there.

Madame Solario is strangely compelling, the reader cant help but be drawn into the intense relationships which slowly develop between a large group of mainly Europeans on the shores of Lake Como. It is a world painted exquisitely by the author who herself would have experienced something very similar as a young girl, holidaying with her family /5.

Of course, you don't need to be familiar with the area to enjoy the novel, but knowing Cadenabbia and the other villages in the locality, and being able to picture the places so vividly described, added hugely to my enjoyment of the book.

'Madame Solario' is set inat a time when Cadenabbia could only be reached by boat from Como (still 5/5(1). Madame Solario by Gladys Huntington, published by Persephone Books.

AFTERWORD BY ALISON ADBURGHAM pp ISBN Set at Cadenabbia on Lake Como in SeptemberMadame Solario () evokes the leisure of the pre world and the sensuous delights of Italy: the chestnut woods, the shuttered villas, the garden paths.

Huntington was born Gladys Theodora Parrish in Born: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I forget now the book's author, but when I bought the book long ago, it was "Anon".

The story is set in a holiday resort for the rich, glamorous and elegant. The part of Madame Solario was completely miscast. Not only was the actress not beautiful but she had no charisma and was so wooden.

But Madame Solario is not an Edwardian novel, it is a hard-edged mid-twentieth century novel, boldly addressing a taboo area of female sexuality.

We shouldn’t be surprised that Gladys Huntington, or her publishers, or both, opted for anonymity. Without suggesting that any of them might have been the “Anon” in the original publication, critics have compared her writing .At the time when the book came out, "Lolita" and "Sophie's Choice" still had yet to exist.

It is the story of a woman who became the obsession of more than six men. Each of these obsessions caused different forms of strife. It makes you wonder if Madame Solario welcomed there attentions or abhorred them.
