Shadow is a Colour as Light is by Michael Langan
Over a century after Cézanne’s death his art still obsesses and enraptures.
And for the characters in this multifaceted novel, the painter’s work is of crucial significance.
In Hong Kong, will billionaire art collector Walter and his son ever be reconciled? In Liverpool, will artist Nick find peace? In New York, can Joel and Sophie mend their relationship with the help of Cézanne’s work in the Metropolitan Museum?
Through these multiple narratives Michael Langan deftly explores human relationships and asks: can art ever save us?
Michael Langan has a PhD in Creative Writing and is a former university lecturer. Born and raised in Liverpool, Michael now lives with his husband, an artist, in Lisbon.
