Maude is an artist. Bruno looks after her. Or does he sponge off her? Is he her lover or her housekeeper? Is she an artist because he organises her life or does her art defy her fussy inventions? What is he to her? What is she to him? Are they simply insane? Suzanne Jacob's Maude develops two complex characters caught in a kind of prolonged, irresponsible adolescence. This intense novella explores the dynamics of this odd couple, a dynamics that transcends the otherwise pervasive apathy, depression and sense of powerlessness.
