Description

Eventide is full of damn fine writing, but it’s the novel’s irreverent attitude toward feminism that makes it necessary to read.” —Los Angeles Review of Books
 
In her forties, childless, and living alone, Karolina Andersson feels adrift after the breakup of a long relationship. An art history professor, she finds fulfillment in her work, and when she starts advising a new postgraduate student, she is struck by his confidence. He claims to have discovered new materials from a female artist working around 1900 that could change the history of Swedish visual arts. Karolina soon finds herself embroiled in a complex game with both emotional and professional consequences.
 
Eventide is a perceptive novel of ideas about love, art, and solitude in our time, and the distorted standards to which women are held in their relationships and careers.

        February 15, 2018

        Crossing the proverbial bridge into midlife sometimes brings a time of self-assessment, of looking at where one has been and what might lie ahead. In this latest from Bohman (Drowned), 40-year-old Karolina enjoys a prominent career as a professor of art history. Her personal life, however, is none too satisfactory: she is freshly out of a long-term relationship, has no social network, and makes questionable choices in terms of casual sex. Graduate student Anton brings a spark of interest, but he seems unpredictable. In need of a diversion, Karolina becomes invested in arcane concepts such as representations of bestiality in art and literature, to no avail. Her overall dilemma is a common one: Should she seek out an average domestic life, focus on her career, or both? As if under a perennially cloudy gray sky, she remains frustratingly paralyzed until a simple act of courage helps her to envision a patch of sunlight. VERDICT While readers who are familiar with Stockholm may enjoy images of the city, Karolina's path to claiming a bit of her own power is arduous and not quite satisfying.--Susanne Wells, Indianapolis P.L.

        June 11, 2018
        Bohman’s moving third novel (following The Other Woman) immerses the reader in the life of 40-something Karolina Andersson, an art professor at the University of Stockholm. Single for the first time in 11 years, she begins middle age with the task of moving to a smaller apartment. As her semester begins, she finally meets her elusive PhD advisee, Anton, who has been in Germany researching Ebba Ellis, an obscure Swedish artist. At first she finds him entitled and annoying, but as she learns more about his childhood with a single mother struggling to make ends meet, she grows compassionate toward him and more interested in his work on Ellis, which promises to be revelatory. Karolina’s interest in Anton blooms into sexual desire, but this new excitement distracts her from suspicious elements of his work. When she at last begins to investigate these inconsistencies, she finds that those who seem too good to be true often are. This psychologically rich journey provides insight into an intelligent, successful woman who burns with needs she fears she can’t fulfill.

        Starred review from February 1, 2018
        A perceptive novel about early-middle-age angst as an art history professor realizes the constraints on her sexual and professional lives.Karolina Andersson seems to have, if not the perfect life, at least a lot more to be contented with than to be dissatisfied over. She's a professor at the University of Stockholm and has a rich intellectual life as well as interesting colleagues. But, now in her early 40s, she's coming off a failed long-term relationship and feels restless and disaffected. Lacking self-confidence, Karolina feels herself floundering and wanting "to make life seem not quite so pointless," so she begins to focus on Anton Stromberg, a graduate student whose research she's supposed to supervise. Ironically, she's never met him because he's been spending time in Berlin trying to track down information on his dissertation subject, Ebba Ellis, an obscure Swedish artist who spent much of her career in Germany. Unexpectedly and abruptly, he shows up in Stockholm to introduce himself to Karolina, and despite her initial antipathy, she starts to find herself drawn to him, at least in part because he is everything Karolina is not--young, brash, and self-assured. Eventually, they have a brief but intense sexual encounter, a connection that Karolina knows is not wise, though she can't seem to help herself. Karolina's personal and professional crises intersect with even greater intensity when she realizes Stromberg might be faking some elements of his research, and she wonders whether he's trying to manipulate her. Bohman (The Other Woman, 2016, etc.) is an adroit novelist with deep insights into the mind and heart of Karolina, a complex character whose restlessness, irresolution, and search for meaning make every one of her actions, both hesitancies and uncertainties, plausible and psychologically rich.Intelligent, impassioned, and compelling, Bohman's latest explores complex inner worlds with great sensitivity and insight.
