Such an unusual book

on

“Heather Rose’s novel, “The Museum of Modern Love,” is a part-fact, part-fiction tale of art, love, grief and convergence.” (Joe Wigdahl for The New York Times).

I had not heard of Marina Abramovic before reading this book and I had to check her out on the internet to discover who she was.  The book revolves around a performance by this artist.  A truly remarkable woman.

You need to read this piece by Steve Wieberg to fully appreciate how mind blowing this book is.

There is another review by Tacey Richter which is also well worth reading.

If I tried to review the book I couldn’t do it justice so I will leave that to the links I have included for two professional reviews.

This is one of my favourite books this year.
