The Colour Black Summary

The Colour Black by Maia Walczak

A stirring take on the American road novel, The Colour Black is the story of a talented young artist Silvia Cruz whose quiet but comfortable existence in San Diego drawing abstracts and nudes is turned upside down when she meets Jack. Free-spirited, athletic and a lawyer who loves wild swimming, he is different from her other models, and Silvia soon finds herself drawn to him.

One day Silvia begins to open up to Jack about her past life, growing up in Mexico amid drug wars and corruption, until she reveals a secret that drives the two out of town. Together they travel across the breathtaking landscapes of America towards Alaska, searching for truth, freedom and adventure, all the while unraveling the mysteries of life, the universe and their own existence. But will they find the answers they are seeking, and will Silvia ever open her heart to love?

The Colour Black is the beautiful, illustrated debut novel from a unique new voice in commercial fiction.

The Colour Black Reviews

The description of place, texture, and sense is exquisitely rendered... its grace and atmosphere made it a wholly involving, immersive experience - Helen Callaghan, author of Dear Amy
