Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Luminous and affecting . . . [Exposure] examines the often fine line between art and abuse. . . . Taut in plot, beautifully realistic, and intelligently disturbing.”

-Harpers Bazaar

Ann Rogers appears to be a happily married, successful young woman. A talented photographer, she creates happy memories for others, videotaping weddings, splicing together scenes of smiling faces, editing out awkward moments. But she cannot edit her own memories so easily-images of a childhood spent as her fathers model and muse, the subject of his celebrated series of controversial photographs. To cope, Ann slips into a secret life of shame and vice. But when the Museum of Modern Art announces a retrospective of her fathers shocking portraits, Ann finds herself teetering on the edge of self-destruction, desperately trying to escape the psychological maelstrom that threatens to consume her.

“Astounding . . . told in prose as multifaceted as a diamond, crystalline and mesmerizing. ‘Remarkable hardly goes far enough.”

-Cosmopolitan

“Impossible to put down . . . Kathryn Harrison is an extremely gifted writer, poetic, passionate, and elegant.”

-San Francisco Chronicle

“Exquisite, exhilarating, and harrowing.”

-Donna Tartt, author of The Secret History and The Little Friend

“A breathless urban nightmare not easy to forget. Stark, brilliant, and original work.”

-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Synopsis:

In luminous, provocative prose, Harrison tells the harrowing story of a woman poised on the edge of a psychological nightmare. As a child, Ann was her photographer father's muse, and his controversial photographs of her shocked the world. Now, years later, a museum retrospective causes her controlled existence to unravel.
