I really like Mary Gordon and was excited to read this book, but just could not get into it. I rarely put a book down and try to go back to it later, but I did that with this book and still couldn't make it work for me. If you like feminist literature, she's a great and intelligent writer and you may be able to get into the groove that I just wasn't able to grab!

Mary Gordon has an entertaining writing style. The characters in the book did not resonate with me.

A delightfully sexy story for art lovers.

Monica Szabo, a middle-aged, moderately successful painter, encounters B, a wealthy commodities broker who collects her work. B volunteers to be her muse, offering her everything that male artists have always had to produce great art: time, space, money, and sex.
Passionate, provoccative, and highly engaging. Spending displays Gordon's maverick feminism, her extraorinary wit, and her unique perpectives on art, money, men, sex - and the desires of women.
