I've said it before and I'll say it again, Kathryn Harrison is an incredible writer.

This book is one of the more disturbing bits I've read by her -- it really makes you think 'what is art?' throughout the book. Still, Ann's story (both past and present) is compelling and I was hard-pressed to put this book down. My only complaint is the ending - it just sort of fizzled out and wrapped up too neatly. I wanted someting more.

The story of a disturbed woman who served as a model for her father, a famous photographer, for the majority of her childhood and adolescence. When a museum decides to show a retrospective of his work, she starts to unwind. You learn about their decidedly twisted relationship in flashback sequences. This is a dark novel, and though it is fiction, if you've read her memoir "The Kiss" you can understand how she can concieve of such a plot... Very well-written.

Kathryn Harrison is an excellent writer. Her books are always very deep. This is a truly gut-wrenching novel. As always, an excellent read, but not for those who want a light and happy ending.

And it got me hooked. She is an excellent storyteller, even when her stories are hard to bear.
