Born in Lancashire as the wealthy heiress to her British father's textiles empire, Leonora Carrington was destined to live the kind of life only known by the moneyed classes. But even from a young age she rebelled against the strict rules of her social class, against her parents and against the hegemony of religion and conservative thought, and broke free to artistic and personal freedom. Today Carrington is recognised as the key female Surrealist painter, and Poniatowska's fiction charms this exceptional character back to life more truthfully than any biography could.

From her birth on a Lancashire country estate in to her death in Mexico 94 years later, she remained a magical, faintly disconcerting presence, defiantly attached to the weird familiars and phantoms of her imagination through spells of obscurity or madness. In this more prosaic retelling, Poniatowska never responds to her subject with self-consciously freakish treatment or slack-jawed fascination, and even at its most outlandish, the story is luminously told.

An aristocratic changeling, Carrington first appears as a child roaming an empty landscape that forecasts the haunted terrain of her paintings. Ghostly boys cavort under the full moon, goblins sneak through her hair, and folklore, learnt in the lap of her beloved nurse, sets her mind ablaze.

Much of the book is dedicated to chronicling this supreme example of amour fou, powered by an electric sexual connection and an occult atmosphere. Amidst the lunacy, Carrington falls head-overheels for Max Ernst, who appears as a character possessing all the sinister inscrutability of the birdmen that he compulsively drew and collaged.

Following a delirious honeymoon phase where their involvement seems almost animal and imbued with mutual clairvoyance, all comes undone as various horrors strike.

Ernst endures wartime internment and Carrington suffers her first psychotic collapse awaiting his return; and later, when they attempt to begin again, the intensity of their obsession has waned.

Poniatowska never attempts to puzzle out any pieces, favouring short phases of lyrical attentiveness to their peculiar climate.
