" Michon breathes existence into Van Gogh's postman and has him sing for the artist in Arles.

From Kirkus Reviews
Michon deals an excellent journey de strength of 5 items approximately paintings and artists: a frequently indescribably eloquent glossy taking over the place Vasari, say, may need left off. the present temper is depression, albeit within the carrier of the top goals. ``Trust this Sign,'' is ready the near-unknown Lorentino within the Quattrocento, who did in truth obtain from Vasari just a couple of traces concerning the ``miracle'' of a farmer, while Lorentino's kin used to be ravenous, showing to supply a pig in alternate for the portray of a saint. And the ensuing masterpiece? It hung in a rustic church, by no means noticeable by means of someone influential, used to be later put earlier than a gap within the wall, and used to be decreased gradually--to airborne dirt and dust. a bit of much less attractive yet both attuned to the nuances and uncooked info of its time is Michon's research of the standard Goya's lifestyles in a fiercely class-bound Spain; and a similar is right of the fantastic yet essentially least formidable, ``The King of the Wood,'' within which an illiterate boy herds pigs and sheep--until Claude Lorraine adopts him as a disciple, elevating him to a princely caste. with no query, even though, one of many really nice items this is the wrenching ``. . . Io mi voglio divertir,'' concerning the passionate lifetime of Watteau, who sought after the affection of all girls yet died at 38 (in 1721) racked by means of consumption--watching stacks of his personal erotic work, through his personal command, being burned. so much breathtaking, notwithstanding, is ``The lifetime of Joseph Roulin,'' the postman who knew, and was once painted via, Van Gogh, an easy guy who got here to appreciate that Van Gogh used to be ``someone who had believed so devotedly during this conception [of artwork] that he had develop into conception himself, ascended to just about an identical peak, and died of it. '' Stylistically tough, yet a publication usually as passionate, appealing, and expert because the work it springs from. --
“Michon demonstrates the independence of voice that marks a real author. . . . His supple prose, dappled with chiaroscuro results, is utilized in simple chronicles. yet his writing can at any time elevate or reduce into semi-hallucinatory results that remember Arthur Rimbaud’s attacks on traditional conception. ”—Roger Shattuck, the recent York overview of Books
(Roger Shattuck the recent York overview of Books)
"From the silence of work Pierre Michon inspires marvels. A portrait turns into someone of such advanced intensity as to signify the mentality of an period. a colour turns into an concept. A portray turns into the painter, and phrases turn into portray. most widely, within the move of Michon's meditations and narratives, the visionary turns into real, and the particular turns into visionary. those are severe moments to which such names as van Gogh or Goya are connected, names that recommend the poignancy and pathos of artwork amid the sweetness and incoherence and damaging nightmare of existence. Wyatt Mason’s translation is great in its strength and precision. ”
