About the Novel

A richly imagined novel based on the life of artist Agnes Pelton—early success in the Armory Show of 1913 before retreat to a contemplative life, first in a Long Island windmill, and then in the California desert. Her secrets—family ruination in the Beecher-Tilton scandal, her shrouded Brooklyn childhood, a passionate attachment to another woman—and the flowering of her deeply spiritual art.
