Slow Emergencies

Slow Emergencies conveys an irresistible impulse to create, and illustrates the emotional turmoil that ensues for Lin and her family. Nancy Huston, award-winning author of The Mark of the Angel, writes brilliantly here about the passage of time, the body’s vulnerability, and the solitude of creative endeavour. What results is a deeply felt novel that offers a disquieting but profoundly moving meditation on just what it means to be an artist.
