Hisham Matar: a month in Siena

Hisham Matar’s A month in Siena is not a travel book, not an art essay, nor a biography. The 2017 Pulitzer prize winner’s latest work is a journey taking place at once in the narrow alleys of Siena, in the contemplation of frescoes and paintings from the XIII – XV centuries, and in the bitter-sweet recollection of past moments and thoughts.
