About the Book

1935
Louisiana

“He didn’t hear her come in, but he smelled her perfume.
She was wearing a mask.”

Lost in the Louisiana countryside, Jake finds a half-ruined ante-bellum mansion inhabited by a mysterious lady who never shows her face. In exchange for room and board, he agrees to paint the house. In the process, he uncovers her secret, and finds himself increasingly fascinated by his enigmatic hostess, Lenore.

Comissioned for the catalogue of art installation inspired by Jean Cocteau’s mysterious and 1947 film, La Belle et la Bete, LENORE takes you into the lush, overheated atmosphere of an aristocratic house and the strange life of its last descendent, a lady with a secret so terrible, it drives her to the brink of madness.

Imagine La Belle et la Bete, film noir, and a bit of Sunset Boulevard to get the atmosphere of this story.
