Nancy Huston, award-winning author of The Mark of the Angel, considers the conflict between life and art for a talented young dancer in her poetic new novel.Lin Lhomond has a husband, two daughters, and close friends. But dance is both her profession and her passion. Inescapably, dance imposes itself upon her, until the inevitable moment when Lin feels she must choose between her family life in a New England town and the all-consuming world of dance to which she aches to return. Huston writes brilliantly about the passage of time, the delights and horrors of motherhood, the body's vulnerability, and the solitude of creative endeavor. What results is a deeply felt novel that offers a disquieting but profoundly moving meditation on just what it means to be an artist. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
