From the publisher

A path-breaking novel of art, womanhood and violence, from the author of the Outline trilogy.

Midway through his life, an artist begins to paint upside down.

In Paris, a woman is attacked by a stranger in the street.

A mother dies. A man falls to his death. Couples seek escape in distant lands.

The new novel from one of the most distinctive writers of the age, Parade sets loose a carousel of lives. It surges past the limits of identity, character, and plot, to tell a true story-about art, family, morality, gender, and how we compose ourselves.

Cusk pulls off a rare feat: richly philosophical fiction - addressing nothing less ambitious than how to live in relationship with others - in which ideas are so successfully and naturally embedded in the quotidian that the reader can choose whether or not to acknowledge them them. - Claire Messud / New York Times Book Review
