Euphoria by Lily King



‘Lily King is one of my favourite writers and this is the book that made me fall in love with her incredible writing talents. Based on the life of anthropologist Margaret Mead, this novel is utterly gripping – the heat blazes off the page and the characters and story stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.’

Inspired by the true story of a woman who changed the way we understand our world.

In 1933 three young, gifted anthropologists are thrown together in the jungle of New Guinea. They are Nell Stone, fascinating, magnetic and famous for her controversial work studying South Pacific tribes, her intelligent and aggressive husband Fen, and Andrew Bankson, who stumbles into the lives of this strange couple and becomes totally enthralled. Within months the trio are producing their best ever work, but soon a firestorm of fierce love and jealousy begins to burn out of control, threatening their bonds, their careers, and, ultimately, their lives . . .
