Meyerson Hall B1
Barry Nemett's first novel is a wise and ourageously imaginative story about love and forgiveness: love and misunderstanding between generations of the Schaech family; inspired first love between Stephen and his student teacher; and love of great art. Old Master and contemporary paintings serve Stephen as resonant arenas for the drama of his relationships, which lend the narrative characters that come vividly to life. By way of the story, Nemett (a painter) helps us dive into great art with abandon. He also deeply understands the nuances of childhood and adolescence and creates relationships with an emotional intimacy that rings resoundingly true.
