Description

Jan Wiese was for many years Managing Director of Cappelens, one of Norway's leading publishers. A book is good because it is possible to identify with the persons in it and acknowledge sides of one self, true sides. Not always pleasant, but thrilling, sometimes chilling.

The collapse in 1989 of the newly-built church at Perugia, killing the congregation of notables gathered for its consecration, just as they have discovered in themselves the ability to sing in perfect Latin, must surely be ascribed to the miraculous (or devilish) properties of the Madonna and Child altarpiece specially donated by the Vatican

It casts the singer as a Renaissance Madonna, with the bower of blooms recalling the painted garlands that frame certain old master depictions of the original holy mother and child. Mother superio. urning white art history to the service of a modern-day black icon has an obvious political kick.

The collapse in 1989 of the newly-built church at Perugia, killing the congregation of notables gathered for its consecration, just as they have discovered in themselves the ability to sing in perfect Latin, must surely be ascribed to the miraculous (or devilish) properties of the Madonna and Child altarpiece specially donated by the Vatican. And the quiet, unassuming archivist, whose researches had led to the rediscovery of the old Tuscan painting after so many centuries in the dark, is the very man to sift through the bundle of uncatalogued documents in the Vatican and bring to light a whole chain of dire events connected with the fourteenth-century painter, his model, and his drinking companion the village storyteller who recorded the events for posterity. Not even the archivist himself, living five hundred years later, is able to escape the dramatic influence of the picture - a portrait that at once enriches and destroys every life it touches.

This is one of those books that will stick with you forever. I read it when it was new here in Scandinavia - which is probably 20 yeas ago or so - and it`s still one of my favorite books.

It has two storylines that go on simultaneously, one which is "now" and one which is hundreds of years ago. Those two storylines are so cleverly interwoven that you have to be impressed.

This is a love story for people who like to have their brains tickled while reading. I can recommend this book with all my heart.

I read it in Norwegian so I can`t vouch for the translation.

Wiese runs into a problem here: the first twenty or thirty pages are so incredibly intense, rich, and captivating that it's hard to live it up. For the most part, he succeeds, but lets it get a little out of his hands. Overall, this is well worth picking up: I read slowly and yet didn't put it down until I was done. He manages to fit a lot of different themes and topics into a small, yet great read. And the opening is just pure excellence at work. Five years and two degrees in English Lit hasn't found much that rivals this opening

This is probably one of the best books I've ever read!!!
It's just like a small golden gift box and inside there is a real diamond.
By this time I've read it at least 5 times and it just gets better and better....
Jan Wiese writes about love, hate, envy and all thoose emotions like one of the best writers of this century.
There is a certain atmosphere in this book that's just one of a kind.
The story is beautyful. Simple and still complex.
I recomend this book to everyone and I promise you that it's a book you'll never forget.

Having had the opportunity to read the book in its original language, may be the review should have been written in the same one....

A book is good because it is possible to identify with the persons in it and acknowledge sides of one self, true sides. Not always pleasant, but thrilling, sometimes chilling. This book does it for me - I am a man. My daughter was gobsmacked - just wonder what she recognised? I don't dare to ask. We agreed, no more questions asked....

A star among the five stars.

What makes a decent girl undress herself in the middle of a plaza in 14th century Italy? She stands right in front of the man she loves and his love for her will never die. It could have been Shakespeare, but it is written in Norway in this century. The power of love AND evil are evident throughout this books, and makes it clear that these themes are eternal, in litterature and in life. A wonderful book!

I was 16 years old the first time I read this book. It is the kind of book you take out of the bookshelf again and again to redescover it's beauty, and to discover something new. Just beautiful... Jan Wiese I take my hat off for you!
