One Madder Woman, by Dede Crane

Long time sangha member, Dede Crane, has a new book out!

These madmen — and one madder woman — paint as if suffering seizures! One cannot make heads or tails of the work without taking ten paces back.

From the author:
One Madder Woman is an historical novel set in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century about the life and times of the French Impressionist painter, Berthe Morisot, the sole female in the original group of artists that became known as the Impressionists. The book has been described as a love story between 2 sisters, between a genius and her art and between Morisot and the infant terrible of the Paris Salon, Edouard Manet, who painted Berthe more than any other model.

Praise for One Madder Woman:
Author Shaena Lambert says: “Every time I left the book, I rushed to returned, to be beguiled again by Crane’s painter vision, and her penetrating exploration of a woman genius at work in a field utterly dominated by men.”
Playwright Joan Macleod wrote: “I was so invested in the story of this tumultuous and beautiful life that I kept reading one more chapter, then another, late into the night.”

Her work has been short-listed for the CBC Literary Prize, Western Magazine Award, CLA Award, Ontario Library Best Book Award, the Bolen Book Prize and Victoria Butler Book Prize, among others.

Born in Washington D.C., she moved to Canada in her early twenties and now lives on Gabriola Island, British Columbia.
