Another book to cram into Women In Translation month - Vivian is translated from the Danish. I remember hearing about this American photographer whose work was largely discovered posthumously. Hesselholdt imagines her story from various points of view, allowing Vivian to be hoarder, artist, caregiver, sister, daughter, and friend.

I had a copy of this from Fitzcarraldo Editions through Edelweiss, and it came out in English August 20, 2019.

Jana L There's a good documentary about her called Finding Vivian Maier that you might enjoy. Her photos are fantastic.
