The Blazing WorldDe (autor) Siri Hustvedt
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 02 Mar 2015
The devilishly playful, intellectually inspiring, emotionally involving new novel from Siri Hustvedt, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize.
The artist Harriet Burden, furious at the lack of attention paid her by the New York art world, conducts an experiment: she hides her identity behind three male fronts in a series of exhibitions. Their success seems to prove her point, but there's a sting in the tail - when she unmasks herself, not everyone believes her. Then her last collaborator meets a bizarre end.
In this mesmerising tour de force, Burden's story emerges after her death through a variety of sources, including her (not entirely reliable) journals and the testimonies of her children, lover and a dear friend. Each account is different, however, and the mysteries multiply.
