Rounding up to 4 stars. The characters are fully realized and memorable in this relentlessly sad story. The structure is unique and worked for the most part, but at points I found it tiresome. I enjoyed the second half of the book more than the first, which moved forward slowly.

An understated and somewhat ambiguous story, essentially about Celia, a woman in her early 30s, trying to come to terms with things that happened in her childhood, for which she bears some responsibility. Goldberg really works at depicting the relationship dynamics over action, which she does very well. The characters are well realised. Much of the drama in the plot is down to Celia's personal epiphanies as she reviews and investigates her childhood. What is sacrificed in drama is made up in realism and atmosphere - I think Goldberg manages the balance very well.… (mere)

"Feast Your Eyes" by Myla Goldberg

“Picture or no picture, people will keep killing each other using methods old and new—day after day, year after year, centuries of killing—until one way or another we’re all dead, and all the guns and cameras of the world are just so much garbage lying in the dirt.”

As someone who typically sticks to certain genres, I was intrigued by The American Library Association's recommendation to read this book in my 2023 reading planner.

The novel is presented as a collection of photographs and commentary, chronicling the life and work of Lillian Preston, a photographer whose controversial work was both celebrated and reviled during her lifetime.

It gave me a glimpse into Lillian's complex and sometimes heartbreaking personal life, as well as her creative process and the reactions to her work.

One of the things I appreciated most about it was the way it challenged my expectations of what a novel could be. The format was unconventional, but it worked to draw me in and keep me engaged. I found myself invested in Lillian's story and eager to see what would happen next.

The writing itself was also excellent, with beautiful descriptions and a strong sense of voice. Myla Goldberg has crafted a memorable and thought-provoking novel that explores themes of art, motherhood, and the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated industry.

My only real complaint was that it was at times hard to keep track of the “who and when” of the timeline as it bounced around to different people and times fairly often.

Overall, I am glad I branched out and gave this one a chance.
