Staff Reviews

Sexy, sexy, sexy. Oh, and literary too. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the perfect book for your lady love: The Age of Light: A Novel by Whitney Scharer (Little, Brown & Company $28). This is the story of the tumultuous affair between photographer and artist Man Ray and Lee Miller, his muse, model, and an artist in her own right. Set in—where else?—Paris in the 30s, the backdrop of the developing situation in Europe brings another layer of tension to the relationship. The love-crazed to crumbling relationship and the dramatic conclusion to the novel made for a book I couldn’t put down. So fix that nice dinner, light the candles and pour the wine, but don’t give her this book until the evening is over or you might just find yourself dining alone.

February 2019 Indie Next List

“Art lovers will enjoy this sexy, brilliant novel about Man Ray and Lee Miller set in Paris during the Jazz Age. Ray met Miller shortly after she arrived in Paris, young and just learning her craft. He became her mentor and lover, an intense relationship with the older man nurturing the younger woman’s talent. But as Miller grew into her art and the relationship shifted, Ray’s ego needed to be first. By WWII, Miller is at the height of her powers, and she leaves behind the safety of shooting portraits for the battlefields of Europe, documenting the horrors of concentration camps. Following Miller from her youth to old age, Scharer explores the passions and creativity of two larger-than-life characters.”
