Author: Francine Prose
Reviewer: Jody Herring, Graduate – English (American Literature), NC State
This book came out of Prose’s love of the work of Hungarian photographer Brassai and showcases her incomparable ability to blend fact and fiction. From start to finish (what a beautiful, postmodern ending), it is one of the most beautiful books I’ve had the pleasure of reading in many years. If you are interested in photography, gay/lesbian cultures, sports cultures, or Holocaust literature certainly add this beautiful book to your list.
