Summary
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Return comes a profoundly moving contemplation of the relationship between art and life. After finishing his powerful memoir, The Return , Hisham Matar traveled to Siena, Italy. Always finding comfort and clarity in great art, Matar immersed himself in eight significant works of art from the thirteenth to fifteenth century Sienese School of painting, by artists whom he had admired throughout his life like Duccio and Ambrogio Lorenzetti, while evoking earlier engagements he has had with works by Caravaggio and Poussin, and the personal experiences that surrounded those moments. Complete with gorgeous full-color reproductions of the artworks, A Month in Siena is about what occurred between Matar, those paintings, and the city. This month would be an extraordinary period in the life of this writer: an exploration of how art can console and disturb in equal measure and an intimate encounter with the city and its inhabitants. This is a gorgeous meditation on how centuries-old art can illuminate our own inner landscape?current relationships, old love, grief, intimacy, and solitude?and shed further light on the present world around us
