Exposed

Author(s): Jean-Philippe Blondel; Alison Anderson (Translator)

Fiction

"Art, love and longing, the French way. Blondel's book ... is the genuine article: an emotionally taut portrayal of late-in-life, post-marriage drift."
--The New York Times Book Review

A French teacher on the verge of retirement is invited to a glittering opening that showcases the artwork of his former student, who has since become a celebrated painter. This unexpected encounter leads to the older man posing for his portrait. Possibly in the nude. Such personal exposure at close range entails a strange and troubling pact between artist and sitter that prompts both to reevaluate their lives. Blondel, author of the hugely popular novelThe 6:41 to Paris, evokes an intimacy of dangerous intensity in a tale marked by profound nostalgia and a reckoning with the past that allows its two characters to move ahead in to the future.
