Giveaway: The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova
Thanks to Valerie from Hachette I am able to give away up to 3 copies of this book! This book would make a great selection for your book group and there are even some discussion questions to help get your discussion started. Here is a summary of The Swan Thieves from the Hachette website:
Andrew Marlow, a psychiatrist, has a perfectly ordered life--solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when the renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes Marlow's patient.
When Oliver refuses to talk or cooperate, Marlow finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this silent genius, a journey that will lead him into the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver and toward a tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism.
Moving from American museums to the coast of Normandy, from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth, from young love to last love, THE SWAN THIEVES is a story of obsession, the losses of history, and the power of art to preserve human hope.
If you are a lover of art I really think you will appreciate the artistic content of this novel. I reviewed the audioversion of this book and you can still read my review here.
I will be giving away one book for every 10 entries with a maximum of three books to give away.
