Description
Emma Dial is a virtuoso painter who executes the work of leading New York artist Michael Freiburg with a sensuous and exacting hand. She spends her days completing a series of pictures for Freiburg's spring exhibition and her nights drinking and dining with friends and luminaries. Then into Emma's world walks Philip Cleary, her artistic hero and a colleague and rival to her boss. Cleary represents her ideal: a respected painter, fearless and undeterred by fashion, and unmatched by anyone from Emma's generation—except, just possibly, Emma herself.

"This is the novel about New York's art world I have always wanted to read. It is sexy, smart, super-cool. Samantha Peale has done the near-impossible."—Gary Shteyngart

"The author's writing is lean and powerful, with passages that cut to Emma's core and incrementally move the story into deeper emotional terrain.... A more than impressive debut, with a complicated, vulnerable central character who's courageously living out the universal creative struggle.... It's a graceful personal journey, an intimate snapshot of a young woman at a seminal point in her life, on the brink of either discovering her true self or becoming unhinged."—LATimes
