Faber Paperback: Faber, 2005. The Maid s Requesttells the beautiful story of an enigmatic relationship between a 16th-century Italian painter and his servant.At the behest of the French king the artist has journeyed from Italy to lead his school of students in the design and construction of a ch teau in the Loire Valley. Despite the fact that master and servant seldom talk, each is acutely aware of the other s presence and routine. He gives her gifts of clothing and jewellery; she is sensitive to his every need. He imagines them dying together, envisaging her as lover, angel, Madonna. Finally she puts it to him, falteringly, one sleepless winter s night in the kitchen - she would like to continue to serve him after death by offering him her body to study. Then, on receiving news of her idiot son s death, she sets out to bury him, promising to return shortly. But the winter passes and she still hasn t returned. The artist develops a fever and, unable to draw, he waits . . .<p>. Paperback. New.
