Description:
This is a novel all about art's versatility. Borrowing from painting's fresco technique to make a literary double-take, it's a fast-moving genre-bending conversation between forms, times, truths, and fictions. There's a renaissance artist of the 1460s. There's the child of a child of the 1960s. Two tales of love and injustice twist into a singular yarn where time gets timeless, structural gets playful, knowing gets mysterious, fictional gets real - and all life's givens get given a second chance.

Reviews
Joyful and artful. Having been told that either half can be read first I ended up reading the whole book twice. The two halves are not predictably interwoven and each perspective is plausible and uplifting. The book addresses parenting, loss, compassion and, indeed, how to be both. Recommended.
