Описание

In Vendela Vidas taut and mesmerizing novel of ideas, a woman travels to Casablanca, Morocco, on mysterious business. While checking into her hotel, the woman is robbed of her wallet and passport all of her money and identification. Though the police investigate, the woman senses an undercurrent of complicity between the hotel staff and the authorities she knows shell never regain her possessions. Stripped of her identity, she feels burdened by the crime yet strangely liberated by her sudden freedom to be anyone she chooses.

A chance encounter with a movie producer leads to a job posing as a stand-in for a well-known film star. The star reels her in deeper, though, and soon shes inhabiting the actresss skin off-set, too going deeper into the Casablancan night and further from herself. And so continues a strange and breathtaking journey full of unexpected turns, an adventure in which the woman finds herself moving further and further away from the person she once was.

Told with vibrant, lush detail and a wicked sense of humor, The Divers Clothes Lie Empty is part literary mystery, part psychological thriller an unforgettable novel that explores free will, power, and a womans right to choose not her past, perhaps not her present, but certainly her future. This is Vendela Vidas most assured and ambitious novel yet.
