"Be warned: Lane''s prose has a tendency to gently lure you into reading the book in one sitting." -"The Ubyssey"
"This is a wonderfully written story, has a strong cast of lifelike characters and a gripping, quick-moving plot line. . . . This is a book that once you start it would be hard to put down." -ABNA Expert Reviewer
"Really takes off during a high and naked moment in a self-made steam hut in the woods." -"Publisher''s Weekly"
Helene vividly remembers that night in Prince George when her alcoholic mother threatened to leave. She also cannot forget the day her stepfather sent her away to a group home. Now, years later in Vancouver, she has met a man who can make her forget all that.
"The God of My Art" is layered with unforgettable scenes of youth, obsessive love, and artistic longing. At the core of this coming-of-age tale are the shifting faces of Helene-teenage runaway, university student, and budding artist. Related in her engaging voice, this novel chronicles Helene''s seminal love affair with Matthew, a globetrotting mountaineer passionate about Nietzsche, and the art he inspires within her. As she wrestles to become the artist she wants to be, she encounters unforgettable characters along the way, including Hana, a lesbian theatre student fed up with her partner''s multiple affairs, and Laurent, a French exchange student who grapples with existential questions of his own.
Bold and poetic, sensual and confessional, "The God of My Art" is the beautifully written first novel by Sarah Lane, one of Canada''s most exciting new literary voices.
