Now in her nineties, the famously reclusive painter Ivory Frame remains devoted to her work: a dictionary of animal languages. Part science, part art, the dictionary strives to transcribe the wordless yearning of animals. She has never married, never had a child. So when a letter arrives disclosing that she has a granddaughter living in New York, her past is brought painfully to life. Disowned by her family, the nineteen-year-old Ivory had gone to interwar Paris to study art, and quickly found her true home among the avant-garde painters and poets who crowd the city's cafes. In fellow artist, Tacita, she finds the sister she never had. In the Zoological Gardens, she finds a subject for her art. And in Lev, the haunted Russian émigré painter fleeing Stalinist Russia and destined for greatness, she finds the love that will mark her life forever.
