9780749006358: The Kiss

'Lingard, with the deftest of touches, invokes Gwen John's ghost and lets it haunt the rest of the novel... The Kiss illuminates the shadowlands that lie between adolescence and maturity, artistic ambition and fulfilment, admiration and obsession' Glasgow Herald 'Impressionable teenage girls, disgraced teachers, famous artists and their lovers... a remarkably assured piece of writing, as effective as it is undemonstrative' Sunday Telegraph 'Joan Lingard tells the story deftly, sympathetically, artfully... [she] recognises the individuality of her characters and respects it.' Alan Massie, The Scotsman

Vom Verlag:

When Cormac, an Edinburgh-based art teacher and sculptor, tries to transmit his passion for Rodin to his pupils he finds his words tend to fall on stony ground. There is one exception: fifteen years old, beautiful and fiercely intelligent, Clarinda Bain is his keenest and most ardent student. On a school trip to Paris she becomes obsessed by the work and life of Gwen John, in particular by her affair with Rodin. When she begins to mirror this relationship by becoming obsessed herself with her own mentor, Cormac's life as a teacher and husband is suddenly thrown into confusion. Compelling and exquisitely written, The Kiss is a study of artistic and sexual obsession by a writer at the height of her powers.
