Description

Leaving Van Gogh is Carol Wallace's first historical novel and it has created quite a buzz among genre luminaries. In this meticulously researched, heartrending story, Wallace re-creates the final fateful days of legendary painter Vincent Van Gogh-who, at the age of 37, shot himself long before his paintings became recognized as some of the world's greatest works of art. "A haunting novel of bold strokes and fine-grained gestures ."-Stacy Schiff, New York Times best-selling author

Professional reviews

"If there is any artist whose work has captured the imagination of the world over the past 100 years, it's Vincent van Gogh. In his own time, however, he was somewhat of a strain on the resources of his brother, Theo, an art dealer, and prone to periods of instability. In Carol Wallace's new novel, LEAVING VAN GOGH, narrated by Luis Moreno, we get a unique look at van Gogh's life through the eyes of Dr. Gachet, the mental illness expert and art enthusiast who was his companion in his time of madness. Unfortunately, Gachet himself is a clinical and detached main character who by his nature reduces interest in the story, and Moreno's unemotional narration fails to make either character more engaging.
