Nan Goldin
The Warrior Medusa

Martine Delvaux


Translated by David Homel


"Fans of the gritty realism in works by Quebec authors such as Heather O'Neill or Rawi Hage will find another favourite in Delvaux." – Dora Cerny, The Humber Literary Review

'I’m riveted by the ways Delvaux attaches herself to the life of the photographer, links it with her own experience. 'I always thought that if I photographed someone or something enough, I would never lose that person, I wouldn’t lose the memory, I wouldn’t lose the place. But, on the contrary, the photos show me how much I have lost.'" That’s gorgeous. – Nicolas Cantin, Le Devoir

In her new book, Nan Goldin: The Warrior Medusa, the feminist author Martine Delvaux links her own experience as a writer with that of the American photographer and installation artist Nan Goldin, whose life has been marked by the suicide of her beloved older sister Barbara, and who is best-known for her intimate portrayals of the sexual underground.
