    Another wonderful and perceptive piece of historical fiction from MVL, this time about the French painter Paul Gaugin and his grandmother Flora Trist n I had no idea that Gaugin was part Peruvian and what a tragic but interesting life she led The book is divided as many of MVL s books including his autobiography with alternate chapters dealing with Flora s life during her last few months and Paul Kok s life towards the end of his life in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands The writing is as Another wonderful and perceptive piece of historical fiction from MVL, this time about the French painter Paul Gaugin and his grandmother Flora Trist n I had no idea that Gaugin was part Peruvian and what a tragic but interesting life she led The book is divided as many of MVL s books including his autobiography with alternate chapters dealing with Flora s life during her last few months and Paul Kok s life towards the end of his life in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands The writing is as always with MVL judgement free and has fluid barriers between the present of the narrative and the past of the protagonist as they rummage through their memories The narrator in both cases talks to Flora sometimes as Florita or as Andalusa and to Paul or his Tahitian name Kok as a friend or an intimate but never with judgement over their actions, just a wistful recollection of their successes and failures I gained a profound new appreciation for Gaugin s work although I am evenrepelled by his pedophilia and his ego centrism and learned so much about his life and the colonial system in the French Pacific colonies not unlike that which MvL described about Congo and Peru in Dream of the Celt or Brazil in The War at the End of the World As for Flora, she was a badass to whom life was really a total shit sandwich That being said, the description of her trip to Arequipa and the civil war she witnessed were extraordinary prose.Once again, MVL writes a compelling novel which talks about exploitation and oppression of natives and especially women in no uncertain terms and the result is readable and thought provoking Another awesome book by MVL

    I thought I d love this historical fiction based on Paul Gauguin one of my favorite painters and his political activist grandmother, Flora Tristan The narrative was confusing, constantly switching back and forth from 2nd to 3rd person I also felt like I d rather learn these fascinating characters true stories, rather than wondering what was fact and what was fiction It seemed tedious and repetitive to me I just felt relief when I finally decided not to finish it after 200 pages.
