About the book

Read Review   Want to write a review?
'her humour is gentle, her style lyrical and observations astute, so that the stories affectionately tease fondly regarded types - which makes for a great read.'
'Martin's ear for dialogue is flawless and subtle, and she convincingly captures the yawning cultural chasm between Europe and the United States...At the heart of these wonderful and engaging stories is the artist's ache for greatness, for transcendence. Martin's writing is both unflinching and utterly compelling.'
'these flash-lit snapshots into the world of the artists are brilliantly exposing.'
'...wonderful...Martin has an unflinching understanding of how low people will go in order to create something of beauty...The prose is crisp and concise as paranoia, jealousy and fear of failure stalk these pages.'
'Valerie Martin['s] talents illuminate every page of her latest collection of stories...In hands such as Valerie Martin's, the short fiction form is not only flourishing by positively swaggering.'
'Martin is...unpredictable yet compassionate, with a narrative gift that can raise the hairs at the top of the spine.'
'These are skillfully written stories.'
'Martin's writing is graceful, controlled and precise...The breadth of Martin's interests is remarkable. She moves around flawlessly in time and space: nothing frightens her.'
'...His Blue Period...is not only as witty as an episode from Sex and the City, it is also a brilliant narrative sleight of hand...Each story in the collection is structured with consummate precision, each voice compellingly rendered.'
'Martin's large gift [is] for fiction, that insidiously enters the reader's imagination, and lingers.'
'Weeks after reading, the characters in this collection hover in the mind - jostling for space as if participants in a group exhibition.'
'In each of the stories in this collection, Martin creates characters as deeply intelligent and as engrossing as those who populate her novels. These are stories that make provocative arguments about art and the moral life...the talent at work here is unmistakable.'
'All the stories here centre on North American characters who define themselves, with varying degrees of success and recognition, as creative artists...They live, love and paint in New York or give poetry readings in Rome. They attend private views, first nights and book launches where the wine is usually cheap and plentiful. The stories concern themselves equally with the creative life and with sexual, romantic or marital relationships...accessible, entertaining, sadly human tales.'
