Look out for Penelope Lively’s new book, The Purple Swamp Hen and Other Stories. Man Booker Prize–winning novelist Penelope Lively’s latest masterpiece opens with a snapshot: Kath, before her death, at an unknown gathering, holding hands with a man who is not her husband. The photograph is in an envelope marked “DON’T OPEN—DESTROY.” But Kath’s husband does not heed the warning, embarking on a journey of discovery that reveals a tight web of secrets—within marriages, between sisters, and at the heart of an affair. Kath, with her mesmerizing looks and casual ways, moves like a ghost through the memories of everyone who knew her—and a portrait emerges of a woman whose life cannot be understood without plumbing the emotional depths of the people she touched. Propelled by the author’s signature mastery of narrative and psychology, The Photograph is Lively at her very best, the dazzling climax to all she has written before. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This richly evocative study of photography has two major emphases, that the language of description (be it title, caption, or text) is deeply implicated in how a viewer looks at photographs, and that the use of a photograph determines its meaning.

"With photography's increasing incorporation into a wide range of fine art practices and the rapid development of evermore sophisticated electronic and digital technologies, it is clear that it is now extremely difficult to say precisely where and how we are to define the boundaries that separate photography from other media. We have been forced to abandon our preconceptions about what a photograph might be or mean and to ask the more fundamental question of where, in the complex space created by contemporary technologies and representational practices, something called the photograph might be; what it might mean for us to identify it and try to relate it to the reality beyond. This collection of essays draws together a range of different historical and philosophical perspectives as a way of addressing the significant changes that have taken place in our critical and theoretical understanding of photography and the photographic over the past decade."--BOOK JACKET.
