Seek My Face: A Novel

Seek My Face: A Novel - John Updike An aged widow of a famous artist discusses her life and art with a younger interviewer. Partly based on Jackson Pollock and his wife.

I liked it but not tremendously so. The formatting annoyed me - no chapters or even page breaks; and there are a lot of long paragraphs, some as many as three pages long. And a lot of long sentences too. I thought he could have made the interviewer more a part of the story. As is, she's just there really; not developed as a character. But I liked the art talk and the inter-play between the two women.
