New Work The Abstract Life
A widowed French artist emotionally scarred by WWII follows the epicenter of the art world from Paris to New York City, remarries, and brings over his seven-year old daughter. Foreseeing trouble, the ghost of his first wife comes along.
The Abstract Life chronicles a decade of repressed, if radical, social change through the life of one new immigrant whose love-hate relationship with his adopted country threatens to stymie his dreams and shows how Americans weather the bad times without losing faith in what America stands for.
Includes adult, early teen, young adult, mature adult, elderly characters
