Description
"Luminous and affecting . . . [Exposure] examines the often fine line between art and abuse. . . . Taut in plot, beautifully realistic, and intelligently disturbing." --Harper's Bazaar Ann Rogers appears to be a happily married, successful young woman. A talented photographer, she creates happy memories for others, videotaping weddings, splicing together scenes of smiling faces, editing out awkward moments. But she cannot edit her own memories so easily--images of a childhood spent as her father's model and muse, the subject of his celebrated series of controversial photographs. To cope, Ann slips into a secret life of shame and vice. But when the Museum of Modern Art announces a retrospective of her father's shocking portraits, Ann finds herself teetering on the edge of self-destruction, desperately trying to escape the psychological maelstrom that threatens to consume her. "Astounding . . . told in prose as multifaceted as a diamond, crystalline and mesmerizing. 'Remarkable' hardly goes far enough." --Cosmopolitan "Impossible to put down . . . Kathryn Harrison is an extremely gifted writer, poetic, passionate, and elegant." --San Francisco Chronicle "Exquisite, exhilarating, and harrowing." --Donna Tartt, author ofThe Secret HistoryandThe Little Friend "A breathless urban nightmare not easy to forget. Stark, brilliant, and original work." --Kirkus Reviews(starred review) From the Trade Paperback edition.
