Acerca de


Set in turn of the century Japan in the world of the Noh theater, and in Paris during the heady days when French Impressionism was the avant-garde, this heartbreaking, beautifully written novel tells of a young Japanese artist who sacrifices everything: family, love and wealth for his art.

A Master Noh mask carver dedicates his life to his art, turning his back on love after a series of tragic events leaves him devastated. Kiyoki, his only son, defies his father and the demands of cultural tradition to follow his dream of becoming a painter in the western style. Kiyoki journeys to Paris, where he lives the life of an exile, unable to break the bonds of tradition, until he finds his heart leads him back to Japan, where he at last discovers himself as an artist.

From the Publisher:

"The Mask Carver's Son is a tender novel about different kinds of human masks: the mask of the son, the artist, the foreigner. Alyson Richman deftly explores the various forms of exile, both cultural and familial, in the life of a turn-of-the-century Japanese painter, a sensitive soul whose true country is the country of longing. An engaging, evocative, and heartfelt debut."--Jonathan Burnham Schwartz, author of Reservation Road

"The Mask Carver's Son is an amazing novel. With remarkable grace and authority, Alyson Richman transports us to 19th century Japan and fin de siecle Paris. From these diametrical worlds unfolds a timeless story: the beautifully rendered conflicts between father and son, between artists and their art. A very impressive debut.'--Binnie Kirshenbaum, author of Pure Poetry

"Like a Japanese tea ceremony, The Mask Carver's Son unfolds with elegance and subtlety in a series of exquisite gestures. Find a quiet room, sit comfortably, breathe, open the book, and let this wonderful novel surprise you." --Katharine Weber, author of The Music Lesson and Objects in Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear.
