Chatto and Windus, 2016
An altogether painterly book, full of vividly evocative scenes.
Anthony Gardner Mail on Sunday
A lovely, poignant and evocative novel .... Delicious.
A tale of lost innocence, the power of art and the pain of love.
The raw power of colour is emphasised again and again.
Cath Sell, Nudge
"Strømme has a strong eye for capturing a scene, from the hubbub of a small fishing port to a quiet woodland in full blossom. The novel also cracks open the strictures and striations of Norwegian society, and the impact censorship has on all kinds of artistic expression."
THE HERALD SCOTLAND
"Bewitching debut novel .…. It’s a vivid, intoxicating blend of fact and fiction, desire and creativity. If you’re passionate about art, you’ll love it – and if you didn’t think you were remotely interested in it, you will be by the end of it."
