Fidessa is the story of young Adam and the three women in his life: his best friend, his new love interest, and the enigmatic and impossibly attractive artist Fidessa, who may be something more than human. Fidessa is painting Adam’s portrait; but as she grows more and more manipulative, it becomes clear that her real work is not the image on the canvas, but Adam’s life itself.
This is a haunting tale of obsession—funny, harrowing, thought-provoking, and possibly even allegorical, and told with the subtlety and wit Dr. Boli’s readers have come to expect. With The Crimes of Galahad and The Emperor, it is destined to take its place as one of the foremost literary works of our age—both on its own merits and because, honestly, what’s the competition?
We promised this for April, but here it is a day early.
