The God of My Art, a Novel

By Sarah Lane

Literary fiction | eBook


AMAZON BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL AWARD QUARTERFINALIST "Like art, Lane's prose reveals its deepest secrets not in the rays of light, but in the shadows." -New Perspectives on Canadian Literature What if the muse, aka the goddess of art, was male? The God of My Art paints a portrait of the artist as a young woman. Years after running away from home, gifted Helene must wrestle with her childhood if she wants to discover her true calling. She finds a muse in philosophical Matthew, who makes her past feel so far away.... but is it? Matthew dreams of escaping the mundane by becoming a humanitarian worker in a war zone, but for now he is fond of quoting Nietzsche when he's not off climbing mountains. As Helene's growing infatuation with him unfolds, so does the true nature of her hero worship. >>> What reviewers are saying about The God of My Art: "Really takes off during a high and naked moment in a self-made steam hut in the woods." -Publisher's Weekly "Lane's prose has a tendency to gently lure you into reading the book in one sitting." -The Ubyssey Bold and poetic, The God of My Art explores unrequited love as the source of inspiration for art.
