Description

When art student Mira Samhain loses her father, she becomes preoccupied with images of flesh and anguish. Martin Zorn becomes her lover and muse, his body's every detail she commits to paper. It's not the first time Zorn has been curated. His sister, photographer Marie Claire Zorn, spent her career working to record every gesture her younger brother made, every emotion he expressed; she made them both famous, and eventually destroyed them. Seeing Martin is Su Croll's debut novel, a work that investigates the predatory gaze, the tidal pull between artist and model, between the seeker and the sought. About grief, and how grief can be held at bay, at least temporarily, by sex and art.

Editorial Review

"[Worlda Mirth] is a crazy, beautiful book...it's an original voice, flying like a trapeze artist between lithe exuberance and muscular grimness...It will be exciting to see where Su Croll takes us next." - Karen Connelly in Fiddlehead
