In paperback, by Sheila Heti
'A story about making art and living on this planet...Beautiful and impossible to put down. Sheila Heti is a genius' Avni Doshi
What if this world is just a first draft, made by some great artist in order to be destroyed?
In this first draft, a woman named Mira leaves home to study. There, she meets Annie, whose tremendous power opens Mira's chest like a portal - to what, she doesn't know.
When Mira is older, her beloved father dies, and she enters that strange and dizzying dimension that true loss opens up.
Pure Colour tells the story of a life, from beginning to end. It is a galaxy of a novel: explosive, celestially bright, huge, and streaked with beauty. It is a contemporary bible, an atlas of feeling, and a shape-shifting epic.
Sheila Heti is a philosopher of modern experience, and she has reimagined what a book can hold.
