This is an auction for PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST'S WIFE by Barbara Anderson.

"PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST'S WIFE begins at a posthumous publication party, where the creme de la creme of New Zealand's literary crowd has gathered to honour the last creation - a name naming confessional of the brilliant and controversial Jack Macalister. The survivor in this quirky and ironic scene is Sara Tandy, talented painter and widow of the philandering Jack. The novel generously spans forty years, and delves into the complicated dynamics of a marriage of two strong-willed, talented, uncompromising people who are linked both by art and an erotic interest that never dims, but whose separate goals inevitably fray their relationship."

"Both Barbara Anderson and her character, the free-spirited Sarah randy, take artistic licence in this engaging saga of ageless appeal and enjoyment. Sarah is a New Zealand painter who grows up in the Hawkes Bay, marries Jack, a novelist, travels to Europe, has affairs and children, and returns to an unsettled life in her homeland. The author's acute observations, detailed character descriptions, ready wit and wonderful humour never fail to delight."
