Robin Black

More Information

Description:

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR "Taut, elegant . . . Black is a writer of great wisdom."-Claire Messud, The Guardian (UK) Augusta Edelman-Gus to her friends-is a painter, a wife, and not always the best judge of her own choices-one of them bad enough that she and her husband, Owen, have fled their longtime city home and its reminders of troubling events. Now, three years into their secluded country life, Gus works daily on the marriage she nearly lost, discovers new inspiration for her art, and contemplates the mysteries of a childhood tragedy. But this quiet, healing rhythm is forever shattered one hot July day when a stranger moves into the abandoned house next door and crosses more boundaries than just those between their lands. A fierce, honest, and moving portrait of a woman grappling with her fate, Life Drawing is a debut novel as beautiful and unsparing as the human heart. Praise for Life Drawing "The page-turning suspense of Robin Black's novel comes from her beautiful, honest portrait of a marriage, of a life. . . . A novel of consequence, and a stunning one."-San Francisco Chronicle "Gripping . . . the power of this story is how it illuminates, in utterly compelling detail, the complex give-and-take of a couple trying to save their marriage."-O: The Oprah Magazine "Truly brilliant . . . [Black] is that rare writer whose gift for prose is matched by her mastery of the other elements that make a great novel. . . . [Her] psychological prowess and incisive observations lend an edge even to seemingly straightforward scenes."-Chicago Tribune "Races to its resolution . . . Black's writing is clear and direct [with] observations about the way people relate that resonate well after the book is closed."-The New York Times Book Review From the Hardcover edition.
