In luminous, provocative prose, Harrison tells the harrowing story of a woman poised on the edge of a psychological nightmare. As a child, Ann was her photographer father's muse, and his controversial photographs of her shocked the world. Now, years later, a museum retrospective causes her controlled existence to unravel.
From the Publisher:
?Luminous and affecting . . . [Exposure] examines the often fine line between art and abuse. . . . Taut in plot, beautifully realistic, and intelligently disturbing.?
?Harper?s Bazaar

Ann Rogers appears to be a happily married, successful young woman. A talented photographer, she creates happy memories for others, videotaping weddings, splicing together scenes of smiling faces, editing out awkward moments. But she cannot edit her own memories so easily?images of a childhood spent as her father?s model and muse, the subject of his celebrated series of controversial photographs. To cope, Ann slips into a secret life of shame and vice. But when the Museum of Modern Art announces a retrospective of her father?s shocking portraits, Ann finds herself teetering on the edge of self-destruction, desperately trying to escape the psychological maelstrom that threatens to consume her.

?Astounding . . . told in prose as multifaceted as a diamond, crystalline and mesmerizing. ?Remarkable? hardly goes far enough.?
?Cosmopolitan

?Impossible to put down . . . Kathryn Harrison is an extremely gifted writer, poetic, passionate, and elegant.?
?San Francisco Chronicle

?Exquisite, exhilarating, and harrowing.?
?Donna Tartt, author of The Secret History and The Little Friend

?A breathless urban nightmare not easy to forget. Stark, brilliant, and original work.?
?Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The psychological patterns of the past threaten to destroy the present in a story about a young woman who appears to be capable and successful but who actually is caught in a secret, self-destructive cycle. By the author of Thicker Than Water. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
Annotation:
After her photographer-father's suicide, a young woman living in New York--diabetic, drug-addicted, and struggling to keep her marriage intact--finds she must cope with what she increasingly understands was her father's abuse of her when she was a child. When she sees photographs of herself at a retrospective of her father's work, a crisis is triggered.
