Notes From An Exhibition

A Novel

BY PATRICK GALE

Brief Description:
This British novel is about a family struggling with the death of the gifted, bi polar artist who is the mother of the family. Only the father's staunch Quaker beliefs give them any chance of withstanding her destructive influence and the suspicion that they came second to her art. The reader becomes a detective, piecing together the clues of her life, as artist, lover, mother, wife and patient. The story takes them from today's Penzance to 1960s Toronto to St Ives in the 1970s. What emerges is a story of enduring love, and of a family which weathers tragedy, mental illness and the intolerable strain of living with genius.
