Product Details


"You may never read a novel crafted with more wonder and mystery than Nancy Huston’s The Mark of the Angel.  At once compelling and highly original, it probes not merely the characters’ hearts and lives but the very nature of storytelling."  -Arthur Golden, author of Memoris of a Geisha

"Huston’s language is beautiful, with startling juxtapositions of imagery…. Huston has made a chilling and beautiful work of art."  -Boston Phoenix

"Describing Nancy Huston’s wonderfully provocative and enigmatic new novel as a tale of adultery in the dreary and uncertain Paris of 1957-1963 is to suggest that The Scarlet Letter is about infidelity and Moby Dick about whaling…. This is a superbly readable story spun with perfect ease and balance."  -The Providence Journal

"The writing style is almost tactile, like a dressmaker caressing a fine peice of silk or satin the better to show it off.  Huston has a sensitive yet sure-handed grasp of her craft."  -Washington Times

"A brilliant, powerfully written novel."  -Rocky Mountain News

"At once [a] love story, war tale and psychological thriller….An engaging, intelligent novel."  -The Plain Dealer
