Deeply Moving

by panchunilla on Apr 21, 2007

A photographer who refuses to see people as anything more than the raw material for pictures. A spirit medium who has come to doubt the reality of her conversations with the dead. A deceased polar explorer who cannot quite bring himself to regret the journey that killed him. A disappointed lover who trains a performing bear to read minds. These are the characters that people the novel All Will Be Revealed. Set in New York City at the close of the 19th century, this wonderful novel explores the hidden connections between three Gilded Age obsessions: pornography, Spiritualism and Arctic exploration. In doing so, it threads its way among a series of dualities: spirit and flesh, imagination and reality, the human need for connection and the fear of losing oneself in the other. It is funny, sad, brilliant, and very beautiful, and I loved it more than anything I've read in years. If you buy just one book, it should be this one.
