- After years away, an accomplished artist returns to her home in England having matured and now seeking to confront the hidden memories of her childhood and explore the possibilities of renewed love. -
"This is a beautiful novel, sometimes comic and always wise. Visual artist Zackheim (Violette's Embrace) imbues the novel with her deep knowledge of the art world, from techniques to agents to the world of galleries." -- Library Journal
I loved Broken Colors, it went into my heart and stayed there.
A wonderful love story, over the years and across worlds - about a woman and her art. Zackheim understands both from lived experience and writes about them with profound passion and compassion.
-Lucy R. Lippard, author of The Pink Glass Swan: Selected Essays on Feminist Art.
I loved the way she describes the process of making art, a rarity in literature.
ABOUT MICHELE ZACKHEIM:
For many years I was a visual artist exhibiting in museums and galleries, both in the United States and Europe. Over time, random words began to appear on my canvases . . . then poems . . . then elaborate fragments of narratives. I began to think more about writing and less about the visual world. Finally, I simply wrote myself off the canvas and onto the lavender quadrille pages of a bright orange notebook. This first book, Violette's Embrace, was published by Riverhead Books.
