Very exciting news… Degrees of Freedom — a novella that interplays the pleasures of art, gastronomy, and love — has just been published! Check it out here at Cantarabooks, an international literary press: http://cantara.squararespace.com/degrees-of-freedom/
Degrees of Freedom synopsis: A work of literary fiction that touches on themes of art history, food, and geography, Degrees of Freedom is set amid the streets of Seville, Spain, and chronicles one man’s search to mend the unraveling seams of his life — a rocky relationship with a temperamental daughter and a failing epistolary (and achingly platonic) friendship with an art critic for the Rome Times – using art as his therapy. As he immerses himself in the vibrancy of the Sevillan streets, the people, and most compellingly, the portraiture housed in the maze of tiny galleries at the city’s Museo des Bellas Artes, he is shaken into a surreal sense of consciousness by the profound impact that art, place, and history can stamp – sometimes favorably, and sometimes mercilessly — on life.
