Self Portrait in Green

Author(s): Marie NDiaye; Jordan Stump (Translator)

Biography & Memoir

Obsessed by her encounters with the mysterious green women, and haunted by the Garonne River, a nameless narrator seeks them out in La Roele, Paris, Marseille, and Ouagadougou. Each encounter reveals different aspects of the women; real or imagined, dead or alive, seductive or suicidal, driving the narrator deeper into her obsession, in this unsettling exploration of identity, memory and paranoia. Self Portrait in Green is the multi-prize winning Marie NDiaye's brilliant subversion of the memoir.
