The Museum of Modern Love
moma-cover-art

The award winning international bestseller

It is 2010. Arky Levin is a film composer in New York separated from his wife who has asked him to keep one devastating promise. On the first day of Spring, he finds his way to The Atrium at MoMA and sees Marina Abramovic in The Artist is Present. The performance continues for 75 days and, as it unfolds, so does Arky and the cast of characters he meets who are also drawn to the performance.

“My guess is that you’ve never read a book quite like Heather Rose’s The Museum of Modern Love. I know I haven’t.” NPR reviews The Museum of Modern Love

The New York Times profiles Heather Rose

  • “Framing a love story around a long-durational performance work, where the passage of time is essential, is a profoundly original idea. I loved this book.”

    Marina Abramovic
  • “A glorious novel, meditative and special in a way that defies easy articulation.”

    Hannah Kent, author of Burial Rites
  • "Swirling with complex characters and connections, posing questions about how we should live, about art’s ability to change our lives, and about the ways art changes the artists who create it.”

    B. A. Shapiro
  • “Incisive, beautiful, and precise, The Museum of Modern Love is a work of art in itself, a treatise on the shared threshold of devastation and beauty, the liminal and the eternal.”

    Foreword, USA
  • "Heather Rose’s career as a novelist has been pursued with a calm daring."
