In 1975 art historian Leo Hertzberg discovers an extraordinary painting by an unknown artist in a New York gallery. He buys the work, tracks down its creator, Bill Weschler, and the two men embark on a life-long friendship.

This is the story of their intense and troubled relationship, of the women in their lives and their work, of art and hysteria, love and seduction and their sons - born the same year but whose lives take very different paths.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Breathtaking * James Urquhart, Independent *
A love story with the grip and suspense of a thriller. It makes you ponder human existence with a peculiar mixture of stoicism and wonder. * Noonie Minogue, Times Literary Supplement *
Defiantly complex and frequently dazzling ... she has created a conceptually exciting work that demands we think, but which still allows us room to feel. * Alex Clark, Sunday Times *
Substantial, moving and beautifully written * Christian House, Independent on Sunday *
A big, wide, sensuous novel - clever, sinister, yet attractively real * Julie Myerson, Guardian *
A consummately intelligent novel, highly literate but also intensely moving. * Jackie McGlone, Scotsman *
Riveting ... erudite and immensely detailed ... a rich, densely textured and utterly absorbing novel * Lesley Glaister *
Subtle, compassionate, wise, and supremely intelligent, it's a striking achievement. * Kieron Corless, Time Out *
Hustvedt ranks amongst the finest American writers working today * Jennifer O'Connell, Sunday Business Post *
a powerful novel of love, loss and longing, exquisitely written * Anne Donovan, Sunday Herald *
