Read full description of the books:



World-famous photographer Maude Coffin Pratt has pointed her lens at the beautiful, obscure, and obscene, and at the private places and public parts of the famous, from Gertrude Stein to Graham Greene. When the seventy-year-old Maude rummages through her archives in preparation for a triumphant retrospective, the resurrected images unleash a flood of suppressed memories--of her extraordinary life, her celebrated subjects, and the dark, painful secret at the core of her existence.

Theroux's "superbly crafted, elegantly controlled novel" (Washington Post Book Review)

"Vibrant and compelling...Paul Theroux at his satirical best." --Anne Tyler, The New York Times Book Review

"Profound and effective, not to mention entertaining.. . . For all the peculiar brilliance of its surface, Picture Palace is a novel whose depths you can drown in.. . . Absolutely brilliant." --Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times

"Dazzling. . . audacious. . . altogether captivating." --The Philadelphia Inquirer
