About this book
Trade paperback. A 2nd novel from the author of "Book Of Clouds", this strange story follows a museum guard at the National Gallery in London. "Book Of Clouds" won the Prix du Premier Roman Etranger in France, and Aridjis has been praised by Paul Auster, Ali Smith and Jeanette Winterson.
Marie's job as a museum guard at the National Gallery in London offers her the life she always wanted, one of invisibility and quiet contemplation. But amid the hushed corridors of the Gallery surge currents of history and violence, paintings whose power belie their own fragility.
