Portrait of Jennie

Portrait of Jennie

(1940)
A novel by

 

"I first read Robert Nathan's Portrait of Jennie as impressionable young man of sixteen or seventeen. It appealed to the nadve romantic in me. Reading it thirty-five years later, I note the clean simplicity of its prose, its economical evocations of character and setting, and its unflamboyant wisdom: 'Yesterday is just as true as today; only we forget'. Portrait of Jennie reminds us of that truth again. An almost perfect little book."
Michael Bishop


"Welcome back, Portrait of Jennie. It touched and frightened me when I was twenty-four. Now, once more, it touches and frightens."
Ray Bradbury


"There is a curious sweetness about this tragedy-a sweetness that comes from Robert Nathan's evocation of Jennie, a tender wise-innocent and muse. This story is a valentine."
Maureen F McHugh


"One of the most durable successes in the fantasy business . . ."
Judith Merril


"Real magic realism from a time worse-and better-than most of us can imagine. Read this, and be enchanted. "
Gene Wolfe


The supernatural love story of a depression era artist and a young girl slipping through time, this spellbinding classic from 1940 is a masterpiece of modern fantasy.
