Product Details


“In their important novel, The Friday Night Club, co-authors Sofia Lundberg, Alyson Richman, and M.J. Rose have unearthed the captivating story of the ground-breaking Swedish artist Hilma af Klint, arguably the world’s first abstract artist who may well have inspired male painters like Wassily Kandinksy who typically receive credit for pioneering abstraction. This spell-binding exploration of the life and legacy of a long-forgotten woman and the circle of gifted friends who worked alongside her is a must-read.” 
Marie Benedict, New York Times bestselling coauthor of The Personal Librarian

The Friday Night Club has everything I love in a novel: art, history, secrets, mysteries, friendships and love—along with a propulsive narrative. Kudos to Lundberg, Richman and Rose—and many thanks to them for bringing Hilma af Klint to life and giving her the attention her art deserves.”
—B.A. Shapiro, New York Times bestseller of Metropolis and The Art Forger

“[A]bsorbing and unique historical fiction… Highly recommended, and don’t fail to google images of Hilma’s art as you read.”
—Historical Novels Review

“[A] bracing novel of female empowerment… Using lively dialogue and an engaging narrative voice, authors Lundberg, Richman, and Rose paint an intriguing and feminist-centric portrayal of af Klint and her circle, women who were ahead of their time and unafraid to channel the voices of spirits they believed were guiding af Klint’s work. A lively and illuminating reimagining of an artist whose name we shouldn’t forget.”

“A fascinating look at the process behind af Klint’s pioneering vision of abstract art… A great choice for discussion that will inspire a deeper look at marginalized women artists.”
