Ever wonder what goes through the minds of the guards at your favorite museum? Ever consider what they think of the art that constantly surrounds them? Chloe Aridjis’ brief, strange, beautiful second novel ASUNDER does just that. Marie has been a guard at the National Gallery in London for nine eventful years, when suddenly, strange events and characters begin to appear in Marie’s life, forever altering its course. A meditation on art, society, women’s suffrage and mortality, ASUNDER will have you ruminating over its ideas long after you’ve put the book down.

“Painters create order from disorder, but the moment that order has been created, the slow march towards disorder begins again.”
