Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Disgraced photo dealer and art historian Robert Armour stumbles upon the long-lost glass negatives of Chinese-American photographer Wilfred Eng. The plates, nudes of a beautiful young woman taken in 1874, bring certainty to the rumor of an interracial affair between Eng and Ellen McFarland, wife of the business tycoon who was Eng's patron. Their difficult affair becomes an obsession for Armour and the backdrop for the novel as he struggles for professional redemption and love.

Synopsis:

A photo dealer and art historian, Robert Armour stumbles upon long-lost glass plates, the work of the great landscape photographer Wilfred Eng. The negatives, nudes of a beautiful young woman taken in 1874, bring certainty to the rumor of an affair between Eng and Ellen McFarland, wife of tycoon Joseph McFarland. The unraveling of that affair and the difficult relationship between McFarland and Eng become dual obsessions for Robert Armour.Though he recognizes the dangers, he also realizes the explosive impact such materials would have. The negatives threaten to shatter Armours fragile career, which was nearly destroyed years earlier when he unknowingly sold erotica by Edward Weston that turned out to be fake. Yet Armour is unable to resist temptation. Letting greed take the upper hand, he begins the search for a wealthy buyer.With the assurance of his mature talent, Orton portrays a societys reaction to an affair between an enigmatic Chinese artist and a white, upper-class woman. His supple prose reveals the subtle psychological turns in one mans contemporary struggle for redemption and love.
