Moving from Italy to England, spanning nearly half a century, and bringing together the lives of four disparate characters, this novel offers a fierce and brilliant study of art and its place in our lives. Original. 30,000 first printing.

HARPERCOLL

The lives of four individuals—a dying painter, a blind girl, a landscape artist, and an art curator—intertwine across nearly five decades in this luminous and searching novel of extraordinary power. With How to Paint a Dead Man, Sarah Hall, "one of the most significant and exciting of Britain's young novelists" (The Guardian), delivers "a maddeningly enticing read . . . an amazing feat of literary engineering" (The Independent on Sunday).

An emotional read for me. Very clever construction weaving the stories of four lives in a subtle way - not easy, as you have to piece it together. For those who enjoy art and art history. Longlisted for Booker Prize 2009.
