Blue Self-Portrait
Noémi Lefebvre

This book is a merry-go-round of memory rehashing, a dizzy spell cast by an unshakeable narrator, and oh so French. —Recommended by Cassie

"A probing, wild, and fascinating novel."―Publishers Weekly

On a flight from Berlin to Paris, a woman haunted by composer Arnold Schoenberg's self-portrait reflects on her romantic encounter with a pianist. Obsessive, darkly comic, and full of angst, Blue Self-Portrait unfolds among Berlin's cultural institutions, but is located in the mid-air flux between contrary impulses, with repetitions and variations that explore the possibilities and limitations of art, history, and connection.
