About this title


Gabriel Josipovici's acclaimed novel reissued in 2018.

Josipovici's novel is based on the life of Pierre Bonnard, the painter of enchanting domestic interiors and innocently unsensual nudes. A thoughtful and deeply felt piece told in three parts from the perspectives of Bonnard's wife, daughter, and the painter himself.

The publisher is currently reprinting this title, reissuing it with a new cover ahead of the Pierre Bonnard exhibition, "The Colour of Memory," scheduled at Tate Modern, London (Jan-May 2019).

About the Author:

Gabriel Josipovici was born in Nice in 1940, of Russo-Italian, Romano-Levantine parents. He lived in Egypt from 1945 to 1956, when he came to Britain. He read English at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, graduating with a First in 1961. From 1963 to 1998 he taught at the University of Sussex. He is the author of sixteen novels, three volumes of short stories, eight critical works, and numerous stage and radio plays, and is a regular contributor to the Times Literary Supplement. His plays have been performed throughout Britain and on radio in Britain, France and Germany, and his work has been translated into the major European languages and Arabic.
