Description :  <b>NATIONAL BESTSELLER • In a dazzling work of historical fiction in the vein of Nancy Horan’s <i>Loving Frank,</i> Dawn Tripp brings to life Georgia O’Keeffe, her love affair with photographer Alfred Stieglitz, and her quest to become an independent artist.</b><br /><br /> <i>This is not a love story. If it were, we would have the same story. But he has his, and I have mine. </i><br /><br />In 1916, Georgia O’Keeffe is a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer, who has discovered O’Keeffe’s work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O’Keeffe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz’s sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé, and muse, as their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation. <br /><br /> Yet as her own creative force develops, Georgia begins to push back against what critics and others are saying about her and her art. And soon she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in.<br /><br />A breathtaking work of the imagination, <i>Georgia</i> is the story of a passionate young woman, her search for love and artistic freedom, the sacrifices she will face, and the bold vision that will make her a legend.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Georgia<br /></i></b><br />“Complex and original . . . <i>Georgia</i> conveys O’Keeffe’s joys and disappointments, rendering both the woman and the artist with keenness and consideration.”<b>—<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br /><br />“As magical and provocative as O’Keeffe’s lush paintings of flowers that upended the art world in the 1920s . . . Tripp inhabits Georgia’s psyche so deeply that the reader can practically feel the paintbrush in hand as she creates her abstract paintings and New Mexico landscapes. . . . Evocative from the first page to the last, Tripp’s <i>Georgia </i>is a romantic yet realistic exploration of the sacrifices one of the foremost artists of the twentieth century made for love.”<b>—<i>USA Today</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;<br /></i></b>“Sexually charged . . . insightful . . . Dawn Tripp humanizes an artist who is seen in biographies as more icon than woman. Her sensuous novel is as finely rendered as an O’Keeffe painting.”<b>—<i>The Denver Post</i></b><br /><br />“A vivid work forged from the actual events of O’Keeffe’s life . . . [Tripp] imbues the novel with a protagonist who forces the reader to consider the breadth of O’Keeffe’s talent, business savvy, courage and wanderlust. . . . [She] is vividly alive as she grapples with success, fame, integrity, love and family.”<b>—<i>Salon</i></b><br /><br /> “Masterful . . . The book is a lovely portrayal of an iconic artist who is independent and multidimensional. Tripp’s O’Keeffe is a woman hoping to break free of conventional definitions of art, life and gender, as well as a woman of deep passion and love.”<b>—<i>Milwaukee Journal Sentinel</i></b><br /><br /> “O’Keeffe blazes across the pages in Tripp’s tour de force about this indomitable woman. . . . Tripp has hit her stride here, bringing to life one of the most remarkable artists of the twentieth century with veracity, heart, and panache.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly </i>(starred review)<i><br /></i></b><br />“I devoured this dazzling novel about&#xa0;an American icon. Dawn Tripp brings Georgia O’Keeffe so fully to life on every page and, with great wisdom, examines the very nature of love, longing, femininity, and art.”<b>—J. Courtney Sullivan,<i> New York Times</i> bestselling author of<i> Maine</i> and <i>The Engagements</i></b><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2003-07-01
Description :  A lush and haunting first novel, Moon Tide follows the lives of three women in a small fishing town on the Massachusetts coast, from 1913 to the Great New England Hurricane of 1938.<br /><br />Through sensual and interwoven stories, Moon Tide explores the secret workings of the heart—the violence of desire and memory, the redemptive power of longing—matched against society’s rules of class and the unpredictable tempers of the natural world.<br /><br />At the center of the novel is Eve, who takes refuge in silence and art after the death of her mother. Eve can sense how the past nips at the heels of the living, and her ethereal beauty inspires a quiet passion in Jake, the son of a local stonemason. For Elizabeth, Eve’s wealthy, eccentric grandmother, one summer at Westport Point extends into a lifetime. She stays on in the town year-round, building a great library in her house for the cold New England winters, haunted by the Ireland of her youth and by one man’s doomed obsession with nature. And then there is Maggie, the exotic stranger with a peculiar clairvoyance. Maggie lives in the precarious space between the locals and the rich—a balance that is ultimately compromised by Wes, a ruthless rum-smuggler, whose desire for her triggers small cruelties and then a staggering act of violence.<br /><br />With lyrical prose, wisdom, and insight, Dawn Clifton Tripp maps the shifting tensions in a small town on the verge of change. Like the growing weight of a storm, the lives in Westport Point build in emotional momentum even as the Great Hur-ricane approaches, and the landscape of the earth comes to reflect the geography of the mind. A novel of love and loss, survival and revelation, Moon Tide is an extraordinary debut.<br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

5 Georgia. Powieść o Georgii O’Keeffe

Author : Dawn Tripp
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books 
Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2017-04-26
Description :  <b>Powieść o Georgii O'Keeffe - ikonie sztuki współczesnej.</b><br /><br /> <i>To nie jest opowieść miłosna. Gdyby tak było, mielibyśmy tę samą, jedną opowieść. Ale on miał swoją, a ja swoją.</i><br /><br /> Georgia O’Keeffe, jej związek z charyzmatycznym fotografem Alfredem Stieglitzem i walka o artystyczną niezależność – w tej niezwykle zmysłowej powieści Dawn Tripp zabiera nas w fascynującą podróż w świat fikcji historycznej.<br /><br /> W swojej mistrzowskiej powieści Dawn Tripp dosłownie burzy granicę między pisarzem a postacią, pozwalając nam usłyszeć głos O’Keeffe i zrozumieć jej wizję życia.&#xa0;<i>Georgia</i>&#xa0;to niesamowita, genialna książka o tym, co to znaczy być artystką i kobietą, o napięciu między sobą a innymi, między miłością a potrzebą wolności. Każda strona zachwyca zmysłowością i wciąga czytelnika w intrygujący świat nowojorskich artystów dwudziestolecia międzywojennego. B.A. Shapiro, autorka bestsellerów „New York Timesa” The Art Forger oraz The Muralist.<br /><br /> Georgia O’Keeffe stała się legendą jeszcze za życia. Malarka po części z tym walczyła, po części jednak sama się do tego przyczyniała. I to właśnie stanowi główny temat tej fascynującej książki Dawn Tripp – powieści, która niczym obrazy O’Keeffe jest jednocześnie bujna i rygorystyczna, odważna i subtelna, zmysłowa, dziwaczna, uczuciowa i pełna polotu. Joan Wickersham, autorka The New from Spain&#xa0;
