EVERYONE IS WATCHING

This debut novel about time, art, photography and how our environment moulds us, blew our minds. A love letter to New York and its surroundings across time, the book meditates on the fictionalised lives of four real people: photographer Robert Mapplethorpe (1967), poet Walt Whitman (1891), city planner Robert Moses (1922) and the author, Edmund White (2013). Often in tight, short sentences and sections, this spellbinding book covers a variety of themes, central among them the tension between art and pragmatism. It is also about the chemistry of a city as it evolves and how progress comes with losses as well as gains. It is amazing just how present the sense of consciousness of Bradbury’s subjects are, particularly Mapplethorpe. Megan Bradbury has this astonishing ability to capture a lifetime in a line and to evoke the tangibility of longing in the human heart. Everyone Is Watching is an exquisite orchestra of lyrical narratives that deserves book-prize recognition.
