    1 thought on “The Invention of Truth

    1. a jewel of a book I began by savoring, parsing out little bits of reading to myself but then I devoured it.Two stories recounted in parallel, the making of the Bayeux tapestry by queen Matilda and 300 women, and John Ruskin readin the Cathedral in Amiens together these create a meditation on the making and experiencing of art The implicit comparison between thread and stone is brilliant, heartfelt narrative, talent, and skill joining the two.

    2. An exquisite little novella that links the tapestry an imagined creation that is and the aesthetic master John Ruskin s final voyage to the continent to see Amiens Cathedral delicious in ever detail

    3. A lovely little gem of a novella Spare, lovely, and compassionate without saccharine Full of questions and quasi fairy tale.

    4. It would have been hard for this book to have been as good as The Alphonse Courrier Affair, and it isn t It is instead an almost ethereal novella with two alternating stories, neither of which is really a story and which are related aesthetically This makes the work sound intellectual than it is The prose is not, nor so much are the themes, especially in the tapestry story the other, about John Ruskin, is certainly aided by having read Ruskin, or at least knowing who he was.In short, this is a [...]

    5. A historical fiction novella from an Italian author, linking two richly imagined episodes in Anglo Franco art history Victorian aesthete John Ruskin makes, late in life, a final visit to a favorite cathedral in Amiens And at the same time, trading in 2 page increments we get a legend like tale of a medieval queen who gathers 300 needlewoman from her kingdom to produce one massive, inspired piece of embroidery.The intermingling of private and public truth invented through a pursuit of art, here, [...]

    6. Part John Ruskin on final tour part seamstress for a queen s tapestry both in Amiens, France Loved the seamstress part Definitely in this trend of micro moments, that I am not sure I approve of Sick of the trend perhaps Perhaps I am just a malcontent because as much as I love Colum McCann, I get sick of his macro moments in literature too I intend to check out Morazzoni s Girl in a Turban.

    7. This is a very prettily written book, but despite being slim it felt like a slog and was ultimately an unrewarding read for me
