Publisher's Summary

Greenwich Village, 1959. Claire Bishop sits for a portrait - a gift from her husband - only to discover that what the artist has actually depicted is Claire's suicide. Haunted by the painting, Claire is forced to redefine herself within a failing marriage and a family history of madness. Shifting ahead to 2004, we meet West, a young schizophrenic obsessed with a painting he encounters in a gallery: a mysterious image of a woman's suicide. Convinced it was painted by his ex-girlfriend, West constructs an elaborate delusion involving time travel, Hasidism, art theft, and the terrifying power of representation. When the two characters finally meet, delusions are shattered, and lives are forever changed.
