Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Minot is renowned for the exquisite precision of her language and her emotional insights, traits she has elevated to new and exhilarating heights in this supremely sensual, sensitive, dramatic, and artistic novel, her finest work to date....Minot's renderings of the heat of the past and the cooling of the present are gorgeously cinematic, so rich in color and motion, music and atmosphere that sorrow and death become no less glorious than joy and life." Booklist

About the Author

Susan Minot was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and grew up in Manchester-by-the-Sea. She studied writing and painting at Brown University and received an MFA in writing from Columbia University. After publishing short stories in Grand Street and The New Yorker she was offered a contract for a novel by the legendary publisher Seymour Lawrence. His initial support for "a work of fiction" became Monkeys, nine stories which together make up a novel about the Vincent family. It was published in a dozen countries and won the Prix Femina Etranger in France in l987.

The novel was followed by Lust & Other Stories, a collection about wayward artists and journalists living in New York City, particularly about the relations between men and women in their twenties and thirties having difficulty coming together and difficulty breaking apart. In l994 she was contacted by the director Bernardo Bertolucci to write the screenplay for his film Stealing Beauty. Her other books are Folly and Evening. Minot lives in New York City.
