About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'An almost unbearably beautiful story about longing and secret lives in which grief and joy turn out to be much the same thing.' -- Robert Dessaix 'Black humour is cunningly tangled with moments of sheer emotional devastation; Taylor crafts sentences of such sharpness and insight that I was forced to pause at moments to bask in the prose. My Beautiful Enemy is a heartfelt and beautifully written novel about love and war for readers of exquisitely crafted literary fiction.' Australian Bookseller and Publisher 'Taylor has crafted her novel superbly. The pace is measured, and the restraint, particularly in the later stages of the book, lends My Beautiful Enemy its emotional punch...A moving and accomplished novel that explores fascinating untold lives from our past.' Sydney Morning Herald/Age/Canberra Times 'Longing, desire, fear, confusion and self-delusion are all expressed with finesse and subtlety in a distinctive, memorable voice and assured, elegant prose.' -- Caroline Baum, Booktopia 'This is a beautifully told story of love, longing and the war within.' -- The Hoopla 'Reminiscent of a Kazuo Ishiguro novel...a love story that is tender and original.' Readings Monthly 'Cory Taylor's novel is a haunting tale told with plangent simplicity...There is a wistful beauty to the book that can make the heart ache even as the mind is deploring the emotional carnage.' Adelaide Advertiser 'Taylor's second novel beautifully explores private lives and battles. As sad as it often is, she draws you compulsively towards an elegiac conclusion.' MX
