Michèle Roberts, the author of 13 critically acclaimed books, talks about Cut Out, her new novel telling the story of three women in the life of revered artist Henri Matisse. With lyrical skill and rich, sensuous prose, Roberts explores and celebrates the reality of the lives of Clemence, Monique and Camille, who were in Matisse’s orbit in his later years, their frustrated artistic ambitions and adventurous decisions to live with more freedom. Today Roberts speaks to journalist Jan Patience.
