Author(s): Christopher Coe
Nicholas is beautiful, wealthy and hopelessly vain. With his older brother in tow, he jets from one glamorous scene to another: Rome, Madrid, Mexico. Wherever he goes, he seeks the admiration of other men, until one day - his beauty faded - he winds up dead, the victim of unknown circumstances. His brother is left to pick up and pieces and figure out how Nicholas came to his untimely end. "Laconic, subtle and full of lyrical effects - Coe is an icy and acute observer." (The New York Times Book Review) "I Look Divine is - a fascinating account of the relationship between brothers." (The Village Voice) About the Author: Christopher Coe was a writer, photographer and cabaret singer. He lived in Paris and New York City.
