THE AGE OF LIGHT TPB

Scharer, Whitney

Εκδότης Picador , ISBN 9781509889136

`Whitney Scharer's storytelling is utterly immersive and gorgeous in its details . . .

This is a powerful, sensual and gripping portrait of the forging of an artist's soul.' Madeleine Miller, author of CirceModel. Muse. Lover.

Artist. `I'd rather take a picture than be one,' Lee Miller declares, as she arrives in Paris one cool day in 1929. Lee has left behind her life in New York and a successful modelling career at Vogue to pursue her dream of becoming a photographer.

She soon catches the eye of renowned Surrealist artist Man Ray and convinces him to hire her as his assistant. Man is an egotistical, charismatic force, and as Lee becomes both his muse and his protege, they embark upon a passionate affair. Lee and Man spend their days working closely in the studio and their nights at smoky cabarets, opium dens and wild parties.

But as Lee begins to assert herself, and to create pioneering work of her own, Man's jealousy spirals out of control, and leads to a betrayal that threatens to destroy them both . . .

Transporting us from bohemian Paris to the battlefields of WWII, The Age of Light is a powerful and intoxicating story about love, obsession and the personal price of ambition. In her immersive debut novel, Whitney Scharer brings a brilliant and revolutionary artist out of the shadow of a man's legacy, and into the light. 'A startlingly modern love story and a mesmerizing portrait of a woman's self-transformation from muse into artist.' Celest Ng, author of Little Fires Everywhere
