Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Daniel Mapplethorpe and Polly Bening are pupils of the enigmatic ballet teacher Romy Lambard. Daniel becomes an internationally acclaimed dancer while Polly chooses to teach Latin. She marries Tim Miller, a rising cricket commentator, and has a daughter, Prisca. Meanwhile Laura Bening, Polly's mother, devotes her days to reading. From a tesnse cricket match in India, to ballet in New York and Paris, to Polly's attempts to teach the girls she terms Vestal Virgins, to Prisca's learning to spin bowl or Laura's wondering about reading as she faces death, Different Kinds of Pleasure examines the pleasures we choose for ourselves and how they shape our lives.
