She is a painter. He is a poet. Their art bridges time. It is 1978. Merle is in her first year at the Corcoran School of Art, catapulted from her impoverished Appalachian upbringing into a sophisticated, dissipated art scene. It is also 1870. The teenage poet Arthur Rimbaud is on the verge of breaking through to the images and voice that will make his name. The meshed power of words and art thins the boundaries between the present and the past - and allows these two troubled, brilliant artists to enter each other's worlds. Radiant Days is a peerless follow- up to Elizabeth Hand's unforgettable, multiply starred Illyria.

display_description After Meredith's girlfriend commits suicide, she abandons art school and goes home to Washington, D.C., intending to kill herself, but a chance street encounter leads her to create a painting that acts as a magical passage through which the young, nineteenth-century French poet Arthur Rimbaud emerges, and both their lives are changed.
