Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A riveting, hypnotic look at the power of art by multiple award winner Elizabeth Hand.

Seventeen-year-old Meredith lives for her art - but after her girlfriend Lindsey commits suicide, even that can't save her. Desperate, Mer abandons art school and makes her way home to Washington, D.C., intending to kill herself. A chance street encounter leads her to a lockhouse by the river, which leads her to craft something remarkable - a wall painting that is a doorway through art and time. Through it comes the young Arthur Rimbaud, the "child poet," who is equally desperate. The two artists - one visual, one verbal - change each other's lives. The brilliant Elizabeth Hand, author of Generation Loss, Waking the Moon, and the World Fantasy Award-winning Illyria, has crafted a story that will burn itself into readers' minds.

Synopsis:

She is a painter. He is a poet. Their art bridges time.

It is 1978. Merle is in her first year at the Corcoran School of Art, catapulted from her impoverished Appalachian upbringing into a sophisticated, dissipated art scene. It is also 1870. The teenage poet Arthur Rimbaud is on the verge of breaking through to the images and voice that will make his name. The meshed power of words and art thins the boundaries between the present and the past - and allows these two troubled, brilliant artists to enter each other's worlds. Radiant Days is a peerless follow- up to Elizabeth Hand's unforgettable, multiply starred Illyria.
