Rachel Cusk''s Outline is a novel in ten conversations. Spare and lucid, it follows a novelist teaching a course in creative writing over an oppressively hot summer in Athens. She leads her students in storytelling exercises. She meets other visiting writers for dinner. She goes swimming in the Ionian Sea with her neighbor from the plane. The people she encounters speak volubly about themselves: their fantasies, anxieties, pet theories, regrets, and longings. And through these disclosures, a portrait of the narrator is drawn by contrast, a portrait of a woman learning to face a great loss.

Rachel Cusk is the author of the Outline trilogy, the memoirs A Life''s Work and Aftermath, and several other works of fiction and nonfiction. She is a Guggenheim fellow. She lives in London.
