Now, Now, Louison


It was only late in her life that Louise Bourgeois was recognized as one of the greatest artists of our time. The art world’s grande dame and its shameless old lady, spinning personal history into works of profound strangeness, speaks out with her characteristic insolence and wit, through the words of a most discrete, masterful writer. A phosphorescent poem-in-prose describing Bourgeois’s inner life as only one artist regarding another can. From her childhood in France to her exile and adult life in America, to her death, through the moods, barbs, resentments, reservations and back, at full speed.
