Harriet Scott Chessman
Adult Fiction CHESSMAN
Summary: 'Quietly lyrical... Chessman's style is fluid and unobtrusive, and manages to be meditative without being abstract' - Kirkus Reviews 'Chessman's language flows like a summer river... A poetic and moving first novel' - Booklist Chessman takes us into the world of Mary Cassatt's early Impressionist paintings through Mary's sister Lydia, whom the author sees as Cassatt's most inspiring muse. The novel's subtle power rises out of its sustained inquiry into art's relation to the ragged world of desire and mortality. Illustrated with 5 full-colour plates.
