What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Night Street is a sensual novel with painterly undertones, smokey and lovely. The intermingling of a woman's art and her charged secret lives forms a rapturous alchemy, electric and haunting." — Mark Anthony Jarman, author of My White Planet

"In language subtle and fluid as brush strokes, Night Street insinuates past the surface and seeks, like painting, the place where landscape and character is indivisible. Based on the life of Australian artist Clarice Beckett, the writing is flecked with arresting insights, ridged with life's exigencies. This is a touching, unusual, beautiful book." — Beth Powning, author of The Sea Captain's Wife

"In this original and sensual novel, Kristel Thornell immerses us in the painter's experience and sees with her eyes. It's uncanny! She seems to write in brush strokes." — Joan Thomas, author of Curiosity
