The Painter by Peter Heller

The Painter by Peter Heller


One of my favorite books of all time is Dog Stars, written by the same author.  A different type of story in some ways.

A damaged man, a talented painter, a confused sole.  A father who has lost a daughter, a marriage, a home.  He has started over but can’t leave his flaws behind.

This book is as beautifully written as the first.  It kept me turning the pages following the story to it’s conclusion.  It is sad, suspenseful, hopeful and has humour.

While is does lack in consequence, you are cheering for the underdog.
