More About The Gravity of Birds by Tracy Guzeman
 
 
 
Overview
A debut novel already destined to be a book club favorite. With its deft interweaving of psychological complexity and riveting narrative momentum, with its gorgeous prose and poetic justice, "The Gravity of Birds" is about sibling rivalry, tragedies, and resurrections. And it s irresistibly exquisite ("San Francisco Chronicle").
Forty-four years after the brilliant young painter, Thomas Bayber, first meets Alice and Natalie Kessler, Bayber unveils a never-before-seen work, "Kessler Sisters" a provocative painting depicting the young Thomas, Alice, and Natalie. Bayber asks Dennis Finch, an art history professor, and Stephen Jameson, an eccentric young art authenticator, to sell the painting. But their task becomes more complicated when the artist requires that they first locate Alice and Natalie, who seem to have disappeared.
Told in alternating chapters that weave revelations about the sisters past with clues Finch and Jameson discover in the present, this story sets three characters on a collision course with their histories, showing how families tear themselves apart and then try to bind themselves together again, not always creating the same fabric. "The Gravity of Birds" combines the drama of warring sisters, the mystery of a missing painting, and the sorrow of lost love into a haunting elegy that will leave you breathless (Tiffany Baker, author of "The Little Giant of Aberdeen County")."
