This Governor General’s Award winning novel is the life story of a successful mini-malist painter who is incapable of dealing with human emotions, and the tragedies of those close to him. A brilliant portrayal of artistic isolation, love and pain.

Un autre livre plein de poésie. Un monde vu de l'intérieur par l'artiste.
Celui-ci est totalement absorbé par son art mais, ce faisant, il passe à côté de la vie. Il refuse de s'abandonner à ses émotions.
Un très beau livre malgré quelques longueurs.
