"A beautiful meditation on the interplay of art, time and memory" - Ann Packer
Ten years after Edgar Degas’ 1872 visit to New Orleans, a lost sketchbook surfaces. His Creole cousin Tell—who lost her sight as a young woman—listens as her former child-servant describes the drawings and reads Degas’ enigmatic words. The experience is both cryptic and revelatory, leading Tell to new understandings of her marriage, her difficult, brilliant cousin Edgar, her daughter Josephine, and herself.
