Description - Special Delivery by Iselin C. Hermann

Delphine Hav, a young woman living in Copenhagen, has never met the French painter Jean-Luc Foreur but she has seen one of his pictures in a gallery and writes him a postcard to tell him of her rapturous response to it. The middle-aged, married painter replies and a correspondence develops. From the start the girl is insistent and intense while the older man is stiff and reserved. However, as the correspondence progresses over eighteen months, so each begins to reach the wellsprings of the other s being and desire comes to the surface. In Iselin Hermann s powerfully sensual first novel the reader learns ever more about the two correspondents as the tension of what looks like becoming an obsession is skilfully tightened. When Delphine, driven to give flesh to words and meet Foreur, takes a flight to France, Hermann s story moves towards an unexpected but compelling conclusion.
