‘Asunder,’ by Chloe Aridjis

Novel, 2013

Story of a long-time gallery attendant, who exists on the edge of London’s creative and Bohemian sets, and whose routines are distorted, firstly by the death of a colleague, then by people from her past and present. Marie’s adventures and trips to an unidentified Northern city, then Paris, suggest a voyage of self-discovery and self-reflection, with the journey mapped out and related back to landscapes she has created. Encounters of different levels of address and intensity are contained within a book which is told at quite a pace and contains plenty of absorbing incident and tragedy.
