9780099275336: The Stillest Day

Bethesda Grant is an artist and a teacher. Her village life is order-ed and calm, until one day the sudden vision of a man's face sears itself onto her mind's eye, an imprint of sensual, hypnotic power. She begins to paint fragmented images of Mathew Pearson, secretly and obsessively. But Mathew Pearson has a wife, a small, laughing, preg-nant creature, whom Bethesda's mother befriends. On the stillest day Bethesda performs an act so bold and violent that it shatters all their lives - she performs a very bloody and risky emergency caesarean on Mathew's wife, using a piece of mirror glass, to deliver a baby daughter, leaving the mother dead. THE STILLEST DAY is an exquisitely taut and shocking novel about a young woman at the turn of the century who transgresses - both in life and in art - the limits set down for her.

From the Back Cover:

Damage: 'Damage is a masterpiece.' Washington Post

'Damage is really a poem... Lorca says that 'the poem that pierces the heart like a knife has yet to be written', but I felt that kind of knife dangling somewhere in Damage' - Ted Hughes

Sin: 'A compelling, literary and sinister tale filtered through a sophisticated intelligence' Eileen Battersby, Irish Times

'As in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, innocence and virtue are cruelly and deliberately betrayed, as the reader looks on with mingled shock and fascination... a tour de force.' Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

Oblivion: 'Josephine Hart, whose two earlier novels have already established her as one of our most imaginative and poetic novelists, has produced here a strange but compelling meditation on grief, loss, and the curious nature of love.' Sunday Telegraph
