Recensione

Brilliant and glamorous (Alex Jones, The One Show)

Delightful and engrossing. [Greenhalgh] slips with utter authenticity under the skin of a female character. Marvellous piece of writing (Barbara Erskine, author of Whispers in the Sand)

Greenhalgh artfully shuffles the few known facts to create a rich, lyrical novel that manages their affair without a trace of sentimentality (GQ)

From a jubilant, irresistibly romantic Paris just after World War II, to Hollywood during its golden age, Chris Greenhaugh's SEDUCING INGRID BERGMAN rapturously depicts the doomed love affair of two icons of the twentieth century. Like its protagonists Ingrid Bergman and Robert Capa, this is a book with both a sentimental heart and a soul of grit. I loved it. (Melanie Benjamin New York Times Bestselling author of THE AVIATOR’S WIFE.)

Greenhalgh's characters are sharply drawn, in particular the contrast between Bergman's inner turmoil and the slick celebrity seen by the public. Capas's self-image is equally conflicted, but together the two conjure a delicious tale of illicit freedom and, ultimately, thwarted love (Financial Times)

Sinossi

Chris Greenhalgh, screenwriter of the 2009 film Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, captures the love affair between two unforgettable people: Casablanca actress Ingrid Bergman and legendary photographer Robert Capa, in this heart-wrenching novel Seducing Ingrid Bergman.



June, 1945.



In newly liberated Paris, battle-ravaged photographer Robert Capa is drowning his sorrows. After ten years of recording horror and violence, he longs for for a diversion.



Ingrid Bergman has been sent to entertain the troops and when she walks into the Ritz Hotel, Capa is enchanted. From the moment he slips a mischievous invitation to dinner under her door, the two find themselves helplessly attracted. Ingrid, tired of her passionless marriage, and her controlling film studio, is desperate for freedom and excitement.



And Capa is willing to oblige. Dinners in cafés he can't afford. Night walks along the Seine. Dancing barefoot in nightclubs. Trysts in hotel rooms. He brings her back to life and she fills the hole inside him.



With everything at stake, both Capa and Ingrid are presented with terrible choices.



Full of the romantic glamour of 40s Paris and Hollywood, Seducing Ingrid Bergman tells the heart-wrenching story of the secret affair between the iconic Casablanca star and the famous photographer.



'Delightful and engrossing . . . a marvellous piece of writing . . . I read it with huge enjoyment' Barbara Erskine, author of Whispers in the Sand

4.0 su 5 stelle "The studio has spent a lot of money placing that halo on her head. People won't [like] you decanonizing her." 30 gennaio 2015
Di Mary Whipple - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida|Acquisto verificato
Four years before there was a Roberto Rossellini in her life, Ingrid Bergman experienced a period of unexpected and intense happiness with Hungarian photographer Robert Capa. Their affair was conducted in Europe, where Bergman managed to keep it quiet from the press, her studio, and her husband, Petter Lindstrom, and it is only now gaining wide notice with the publication of this fictionalized biography. Robert Capa had achieved fame for his uncompromising and heroic photographs of the Spanish Civil War in the late 1930s, the Chinese resistance to the Japanese invasion in the early 1940s, and the Magnificent Eleven photographs he made of the D-Day landings in 1944.

Addicted to danger and exhilarated by the high drama of battle, Capa would seem, on the surface, to have little in common with the coolly elegant Ingrid Bergman, the Swedish Academy Award-winner famous for the subtlety of her acting performances and her quiet, lady-like demeanor. Nevertheless, these two people found solace with each other in the aftermath of the war, as each was alone and dealing with private demons. Capa, out of work at the war's end, was wandering Europe, drinking too much and gambling, while Bergman was traveling and entertaining the troops remaining in Europe. Long dominated and controlled by her husband of eight years, who managed her career and every aspect of her life, Bergman was able, on this trip, to feel complete liberation, and she discovers passionate love for the first time.

British author Chris Greenhalgh, creates a lively and unsentimental novel from what is known about the Bergman-Capa affair and the atmosphere which produced it, creating and then conveying details which make these two characters "real," as he explores their thinking and behavior over the course of their year-long affair. By alternating the points of view between the first person accounts of Capa, and the third person point of view of Bergman, which keeps her at a more discreet distance, Greenhalgh creates sympathetic characters who pursue their love. Their relationship becomes increasingly tense when they return to Hollywood. The overwhelming presence of Petter Lindstrom takes its toll on both lovers, and Capa, often drunk, begins to be indiscreet. Symbols arise as their relationship is tested.

History reveals the outcome of this relationship before the novel even starts, but this affair in 1945, Bergman's first, may have been most responsible for her emotional growth. Passionate and desperate in their need to escape the present, for a few months, at least, Ingrid Bergman and Robert Capa cannot help but recognize the inevitable outcome long before the curtain falls. The strength and the sense of finality with which the two lovers face the inevitable will stir even the most hard-hearted reader.

5.0 su 5 stelle A seductive embrace 30 marzo 2014
Di W. Rodick - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
I want to tell you that I’m really enjoying reading this book. The prose is as insightful as a novel and as fascinating as a biography. It has surprised me.

Drawn to it by a television program covering Ingrid Bergman’s television appearances, I remembered that the book has been available to me for well over a year free of charge. Even when I’ve seen it on book shelves I had no way into it. Then that Ingrid Bergman interview with Michael Parkinson in 1973 aroused me. I got the book and have savored the opening chapters.

It appeals to the photographer in me. The male lead being a photo journalist at the end of world war two. The details of his profession are very well rendered. The description of Bergman’s own first Oscar presentation intensified my interest. I love the business of making movies. But this is a story of two individuals succeeding on their own terms. She is married to an anchor. A safe bet. Her manager.

Her television appearances led me to the belief that she was a consummate liar. True, I often get that feeling when listening to actors but Ingrid Bergman had the facts of her life punctuating those television shows. And I love class. The one thing that Ingrid Bergman oozes is class. I find it intensely arousing. As, I suspect, did the young Michael Parkinson.

It is the quality of the writing which keeps me reading. Excellent narrative progression including insight into individual psyche and allusions to possible motives. I admit that without a love of the movies you may not enjoy this beckoning intercourse. Were Ilsa and Rick a means to an end?

3.0 su 5 stelle FICTIONALIZED ACCOUNT OF THE BERGMAN/CAPPA AFFAIR 12 settembre 2014
Di Jack E. Levic - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida|Acquisto verificato
INGRID BERGMAN is my favorite actress and I have always been a fan of photographer Robert Cappa so when I found out about this book, I had to have it. I was expecting a historical account of their affair along with some photos but the book is actually a work of fiction based on the author's ideas of their romance. There is no problem with that unless you, like me, are expecting a researched fact based book on two fascinating people whose lives collided. No doubt the author has taken some real facts but the book copyright page clearly says in small print "This is a work of fiction." My first clue to this fact was the cover of the book saying "A novel".
I read the description on Amazon and it does not say it is a work of fiction. Again, it seemed to me that I was buying a book that was nonfiction. I am returning the book to Amazon and just want readers to be sure they know this is a fictionalized account of the Bergman/Cappa story. Don't expect pictures of them together. I did not read the book so I can't comment on the style of writing or content. I just am disappointed to have bought the book unknowing that it is a work of fiction.
