    1. An astonishing, strange work. Our narrator encounters numerous 'green women.' "Who can deny that cruelty is particularly given to draping itself in all sorts of greens?" The green women are ontologically indeterminate; perhaps they're projections, perhaps they're supernatural creatures, perhaps they're ordinary women who happen to be wearing green. Their identity is indeterminate: are they body-snatchers, or are they who they claim to be (the narrator's friend, or mother, and so on), or are they [...]


    2. I just can't get over how good Marie NDiaye is. Her prose are so beautiful, I can't put her books down once I start reading. She is a truly gifted writer.


    3. The first NDiaye I read and it's left me wanting more. Self-Portrait in Green is beguiling, if a little slight and maybe just too elliptical. NDiaye's sentences are incredible, and there's a wariness in her prose that leaves me slightly on edge. Looking forward to more of her work.


    4. i had this book laying around for a while now, had started reading it and stopped. today I just started and finished it within 2 hours I couldn't stop reading even though I'm not sure if I fully understood it. it's a weird start into the new year but maybe it somehow mirrored my feelings I've read the German version because my French isn't good enough but I have the feeling it lost some of it's magic with the translation.


    5. not quite what one expects when reading a memoir, though with Ndiaye one probably learns to cease expecting and just enjoy the writing this was an odd little book a bit of daily journal-ish intermixed with fantastical elements about green women who seem to manifest in alarmingly diverse ways not quite sure i would even call this a memoir, since it has little to set it in place/time besides the arbitrarily listed places/dates that could as well be as made up as the aforementioned green women stra [...]





    6. Personal copy received as part of subscription to Two Lines Press.Shortly after I finished reading this book, I checked my Twitter feed and was led to the J. Paul Getty Pinterest gallery of Museum Selfies pinterest/gettymuseum , a collection of artist's self-portraits.What is a self-portrait? Is it the way the artist sees him/herself? Is it the way the artist wants to be perceived by the world? Is it a way to explain the artist's life and work? Or perhaps it is an artistic exercise. How close to [...]


    7. A profoundly strange memoir drunk on myth and estrangement.The recurrence of the color green returns it to an elemental state, in which it is pregnant with meaning that is unstable but transfixing, inscrutable but revelatory.There is a revolving structure to this story, which tracks the evolution of a woman through the people (primarily other women) and circumstances against which she comes to define herself and the world she cannot help but inhabit deeply and with great sensitivity.The reader c [...]


    8. Of the books I've read recently, Self-Portrait reminds me of Valerie Luiselli's Faces in the Crowd and perhaps also of Elena Ferrante's The Days of Abandonment. From the first: the whispery narrator, the ghostly presences, the superposition of fact and fiction, a story told in layers of time. From the second: the claustrophobia of family life, the insanity of small spaces, the edge of bitterness in everything.


    9. I picked up this book on a whim because I saw it on few best of 2014 lists. Little did I know, I'd be entirely gripped for half a day to read the entire memoir. NDiaye paints a picture of four women in green, whether clothed in green or emitting green from within. These women haunt and inspire her, while guiding the reader through a story of subjective reality.


    10. This one - this morning - one sitting Mysterious, elegant, French, and oh so beautiful. Treat your soul!


    11. The memory of this book slowly dissolves into green, mutable, a formless dream that seemingly left no imprint upon my psyche, despite some elegant sentences2.5
