Edward Hopper: Turning an icon into a novel

A talk by Christine Dwyer Hickey

Dance Limerick, John’s Square | Saturday, February 22nd | 11am | €14/€12

Set on Cape Cod in the summer of 1950, The Narrow Land is the story of two young boys, one a German refugee, the other an only son of a wealthy American army officer killed in the war and what happens when they befriend a couple living nearby in an isolated house on a bluff overlooking the sea – the artists Edward and Jo Hopper. She, volatile, passionate and often irrational, suffers from bouts of sexual jealously. He, withdrawn and unwell, is depressed by his inability to work. This is a novel about loneliness, regret and unrequited longing. It is also the story of a long and troubled marriage and a fictional study of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century.
