Self-Portrait with Boy: A Novel Rachel Lyon
Self-Portrait With Wings [Susan Kohn Green] on Amazon.com. This book immediately caught my attention! Joyce Carrol Oates has called the novel “an original and disturbing examination of the ill-defined borders between life and art.”. I truly cannot wait to read it! Thank you so much to the wonderful Scribner Books for sending me a free copy! The book launch will take place at Books Are Magic on Feb. Green's book is a deft first effort that reveals the downside of fantastic events. Another celebration is in the works for Lyon as her debut novel, “Self Portrait withBoy” will be released on Feb. One would swear the main character, Tim Buckles, truly existed, were it not for the author's skillful employment of literary devices that announce this is a work of fiction. Giles Waterfield applauds Sir Roy Strong's 'Self-Portrait as a Young Man'. Set in early 90s Brooklyn on the brink of gentrification, Self-Portrait with Boy is a provocative commentary about the emotional dues that must be paid on the road to success, a powerful exploration of the complex terrain of female friendship, and a brilliant debut from novelist Rachel Lyon. Not only because the cover is so beautiful, but the description sounds INCREDIBLE!
