White on White

White on WhiteWhite on White by Ayseg├╝l Savas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An unnamed narrator in an anonymous city is a graduate student researching nudity in medieval sculptures for her thesis. She moves into an apartment and her older landlady, an artist married to an art historian, comes to town and moves into her studio upstairs. She assertively befriends the student with gifts, treats and conversation. The writing is restrained and beautiful representing the measured interest and elegant character of the protagonists. But the intensity of the relationship increases lending an air of suspense to a poetic journey through art and distress. I warmed to the book as I read.
