About Paris Pages
A short novel in one hundred fragments. Three characters, one city, and the power of art will change them all. Clara’s done with psychotherapy and wants to be a biographer. Sadie’s a photographer whose work with traumatised migrants has taken its toll. Now she has ethical dilemmas about the value of art and is suffering creative block. Their lives intertwine with the enigmatic presence of László who personifies the very essence of creativity. In 100 fragments the lyrical prose charts the shifting balances within and between the characters. Will Clara finally give in to her own limitations? Will Sadie rediscover her creativity? No-one can undo the past, but how often will they repeat the same mistakes? And László? He alone seems to understand the complexities of human connection, and the indelible ways creativity shapes and transforms us.
Clara, Sadie, László, Paris: When a lost psychotherapist meets a traumatised artist, who rescues whom?
