Description

Cormac, an art teacher living now in Edinburgh with his wife and children, is an admirer of Rodin and a sculptor himself. When he tries to transmit his enthusiasm for Rodin to his students he finds his words tend to fall on stony ground, except when it comes to young Clarinda Bain. Fifteen years old, beautiful and fiercely intelligent, Clarinda is his most ardent student. On a school trip to Paris she becomes obsessed by the work and life of Gwen John, in particular by her affair with Rodin. She then begins to mirror this relationship by becoming obsessed herself with her own mentor, Cormac. Compelling and exquisitely written, "The Kiss" is a study of artistic and sexual obsession by an author at the height of her powers.show more
