Teaser Tuesday – 23/03/2021

23 Mar

This is Teaser Tuesday, a weekly Meme hosted by The Purple Booker. Anyone is welcome to join in!

This week’s teaser is for “L’Origine: The Secret Life Of The World’s Most Erotic Masterpiece” by Lilianne Milgrom.

L’Origine is a historical fiction novel inspired by Courbet’s painting, L’Origine du Monde. It has received glowing reviews, and has won the Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion Award. The painting blew my mind when I saw it, and the concept of the book piqued my interest, so I applied for a free review copy here.

Currently I’m just over half-way through and loving the excellent story-telling. A review should be forthcoming by the end of the week (in case you’re interested).

The more I interacted with the public, the more fascinated I became with what others saw in Courbet’s painting. For one elderly gentleman, it triggered memories of his deceased wife, while for one sweet little grandma it seemed like the perfect teaching tool to introduce her granddaughter to the birds and the bees. It didn’t quite go as planned.

“Look, chérie,” said Grandma. “That’s where all babies come from.”

“No, it isn’t!” whined her young charge.

“But it is, my little cabbage. You too came into the world from there.”

“No, I didn’t!” replied the little girl, stamping her foot. “Maman had a caesarean!”
