內容簡介

Lee Miller原是美國當紅模特兒,事業有成的她卻說:「我寧願拍張照也不願意成為一張照片。」自那之後,就離開美國和模特兒行業,到她心中如夢似景般的巴黎,夢想是成為一個攝影師。

很快地,Miller就被藝術家Ray Man注意到了,在Miller的百般央求下,Man雇用了她為貼身助理,兩人日夜緊密相處,白天在工作室創作,夜晚則沉浸在鴉片屋、無止盡的派對中,不可避免地,兩人也開始了一段情……

直到Miller開始發揮才能創作出充滿才情的作品,Man的忌妒心也因此而起,直到Man自己也無法掌控,一絲一絲洩漏出來的忌妒心漸漸變成巨大的暗黑力量,威脅著兩人……

本書為作者Whitney Scharer的出道作,卻將愛、佔有、忌妒寫得絲絲入扣,也讓Scharer成為備受注目的文壇新星。

`Whitney Scharer's storytelling is utterly immersive and gorgeous in its details . . . This is a powerful, sensual and gripping portrait of the forging of an artist's soul.' Madeleine Miller, author of Circe `I'd rather take a photograph than be one,' says Lee Miller, shortly after she arrives in Paris in 1929. Gorgeous and talented, Lee has left behind a successful modelling career at Vogue to pursue her dream of being an artist. There she catches the eye of the famous Surrealist artist Man Ray. An egotistical, charismatic force, Lee is drawn to him immediately. Though he initially wants to use her as a model, Lee is determined to become Man's photography assistant instead. As their personal and professional lives become further entwined, Lee is consumed by two desires: to become a famous photographer and to have a healthy and loving relationship. But as Lee asserts herself and moves from being a muse to an artist, Man's jealousy spirals out of control, and their mutual betrayals threaten to destroy them both. Richly detailed and filled with a cast of famous characters, The Age of Light is a captivating historical novel about ambition, love, and the personal price of making art. In exploring Lee's complicated and fascinating history, Whitney Scharer has brought a brilliant and pioneering artist out of the shadow of a man's story and into the light.
