An Eighth Day View:
A national bestseller from acclaimed author Iain Pears, "The Portrait" is a novel of suspense and a tour de force.
An art critic journeys to a remote island off Brittany to sit for a portrait painted by an old friend, a gifted but tormented artist living in self-imposed exile. The painter recalls their years of friendship, the gift of the critic's patronage, and his callous betrayals. As he struggles to capture the character of the man, as well as his image, on canvas, it becomes clear that there is much more than a portrait at stake...
Iain Pears's "An Instance of the Fingerpost" and "The Dream of Scipio" are also available from Riverhead Books.
