Inhaltsangabe

A revealing and beautifully written memoir and family history from acclaimed photographer Sally Mann.
In this groundbreaking audiobook, a unique interplay of narrative and image, Mann's preoccupation with family, race, mortality, and the storied landscape of the American South are revealed as almost genetically predetermined, written into her DNA by the family history that precedes her.
Sorting through boxes of family papers and yellowed photographs she finds more than she bargained for: "deceit and scandal, alcohol, domestic abuse, car crashes, bogeymen, clandestine affairs, dearly loved and disputed family land... racial complications, vast sums of money made and lost, the return of the prodigal son, and maybe even bloody murder."
In lyrical prose and startlingly revealing photographs, she crafts a totally original form of personal history that has the pause-resisting drama of a great novel but is firmly rooted in the fertile soil of her own life.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying photographs will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Kritikerstimmen

"One would not need to know Sally Mann's remarkable work as a photographer to be swept up in her memoir Hold Still, which draws upon a family history so rife with jaw-dropping drama that it could provide the grist for a dozen novels. With prodigious intellect and a telling instinct for the exact detail that will reveal character or throw it into question, Mann delves into the treacherous territory of memory, mesmerized by the relentless dance of beauty and decay. In doing so, she manifests in prose the acuity of seeing that has propelled her to the top rank of contemporary artists." (Andrew Solomon, author of Far From the Tree and The Noonday Demon)
" Hold Still is a wild ride of a memoir. Visceral and visionary. Fiercely beautiful. My kind of true adventure." (Patti Smith, musician and National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids)
"What I admire most about Sally Mann's new book is not her ability to write captivating sentences - she does. It's the honesty and fearlessness, the two mixed together, compelling her to own up to her mistakes, to acknowledge her winnings, to accept her losses (and those of her family). For this quality alone, Hold Still deserves a fixed place in the library of American memoir." (Paul Hendrickson, author of Hemingway's Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost)
