Self-Portrait in Green by Marie NDiaye

Self-Portrait in GreenSelf-Portrait in Green by Marie NDiaye
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Remarkable, confusing and gorgeous prose in a translation by Jordan Stump, I floated through this slim memoir and finished with questions about which of the women in green was the narrator/author, and what it all meant including the photos reminiscent of W.G. Sebald. I want to read more of her work. "Marie NDiaye is so intelligent, so composed, so good, that any description of her work feels like an understatement," blurbs The New York Review of Books.
