HARPERCOLL

“One of the most interesting and original writers of our time.”

—Mario Vargas Llosa

 

Winner of 2004 Peace Prize—Germany’s most prestigious literary honor—Peter Esterhazy, author of the acclaimedCelestial Harmonies, offers us Not Art, a uniquely brilliant novelized exploration of his mother’s life. Following through on his promise at the conclusion of his famed work,Helping Verbs of the Heart, Esterhazy touches on all aspects of life and philosophy relevant to readers today, in an extraordinary novel that centers on a mother’s relationship to her son and the game of football. Powerful and original,Not Art is a major contribution from one of Europe’s most significant writers and perennial contender for the Nobel Prize.
