Description
Arthur Ellis Best Crime Novel Award Winner: A "funny, poignant, surprising" (Margaret Atwood) literary detective story centering around a murdered poet. Who is Mary Swann? In this novel of a writer's revenge, an uneducated farmer's wife delivers a paper bag filled with scraps of her poems to the publisher of a small press. Hours later, she's dead, murdered by her husband. Fifteen years on, her book of one hundred twenty-five poems--Mary Swann's sole claim to fame--is discovered by an American academic. And a literary odyssey begins. Four narrators--Sarah Maloney, a feminist writer; Frederic Cruzzi, an edit∨ Morton Jimroy, a biographer; and Rose Hindmarch, Mary's only friend--all have a stake in the deceased poet's work. Their chorus of voicesopens a fascinating window on what constitutes genius. As the four descend into a quagmire of ego, jealousy, and backstabbing, Mary Swann comes back to life--in the minds and hearts of those who love and hate her most. Full of mischief, Swann is a novel about life, death, and the ideas that live on after us.
