I received one book this week and that was The Age of Light by Whitney Scharer
Publication date 12th February 2019.
Gorgeous and talented, Lee Miller has left behind a successful modelling career at Vogue to pursue her dream of being an artist. There she catches the eye of the famous Surrealist artist Man Ray. An egotistical, charismatic force. Lee is drawn to him immediately. Though he originally wants to use her as a model, Lee is determined to become Man's photography assistant instead.
As their personal and professional lives become further entwined, Lee is consumed by two desires; to become a famous photographer and to have a healthy and loving relationship. But as Lee asserts herself and moves from being a muse to an artist, Man's jealousy spirals out of control, and their mutual betrayals threaten to destroy them both.
This is Whitney Scharer's debut novel and I'm intrigued to see how her writing will portray Paris in the 1930's. I'm also interested to see how she brings Lee Miller out from behind the shadow of Man Ray.
