SELF-PORTRAIT WITH GHOSTS by Kelly Dwyer - FIRST EDITION BOOK

Putnam: NY 1999 First edition, first printing, new/unread in flawless dustjacket.

With the "tenderness, mysticism and a careful balance of humor and pain" (Mademoiselle) that dazzled critics in The Tracks of Angels, Kelly Dwyer follows up her successful debut with a story of familial love, betrayal, and forgiveness. In Self-Portrait with Ghosts, Kelly Dwyer tells the story of the life and death of a man who grows tired of living, and whose suicide profoundly affects, and changes, the family he leaves behind. At the time of Luke's death, his sister Kate, an accomplished artist and sculptor, is working hard to rise to the demands of single motherhood and, at the same time, to forgive her sister's unspeakable disloyalty. For Kate's daughter, Audrey, Luke is a substitute for the father who left years earlier and has been barred from all communication with her. With Luke suddenly dead, the entire family is prompted to reexamine the deceptions that tore it apart, as each member ultimately rediscovers what it is that makes life worth living. "Dwyer's style is engaging. She has an eye for the quirky detail, creates real, likable characters...This is writing you can trust" (Los Angeles Times Book Review). Once again with candor and grace, Kelly Dwyer gives us a tale that is sure to touch anyone with a family--or anyone with a heart.
