Description

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 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 cafEs 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 emptiness inside him. Full of the romantic glamour of post-war Paris and Hollywood, Seducing Ingrid Bergman tells the heart-wrenching story of the secret affair between the iconic Casablanca star and the famous photographer.

Professional reviews

"Jonathan KeebleÕs deep and gravelly voice suits this novelization of the secret love affair between WWII photographer Robert Capa and Hollywood actress Ingrid Bergman. As the story whisks in and out of mysterious Parisian and Hollywood hideaways and cafŽs, the writing is flowery, and Keeble portrays all characters with appropriate timing and tone, as well as a British accent. But the fleshing out of the few known facts surrounding the purportedly real events of the relationship is wanting. Ultimately, the listener is left adrift despite KeebleÕs strong effort.
