Published by Hol Art Books
Made up of biographical scraps, journal entries, review excerpts, and interviews, "A Painter’s Life" is a life told in pieces. It is the life of artist Christopher Freeze and in the course of this "thoughtful and drily humorous" novel (Lydia Millet, for the Oregon Book Awards) we learn about his interests and obsessions, feel his struggles, and come to know those around him through his own words about them—his family and friends, his dealer and fellow artists, and his would-be monographer. These pieces and people add up to a complete portrait of a talented and passionate artist trying to make his way through the art world and through life. "A Painter's Life" is about one man's ceaseless struggle to make something beautiful. -- WINNER of a 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Award. Eric Hoffer Book Award Finalist 2010. Oregon Book Award Finalist 2011.
