I love the cover for Work of Art by Ken La Salle, when something so simple can say so much.
What is your definition of art? After reading Work of Art by Ken La Salle, you may change your mind.
The whole time I’m reading, I’m trying to take notes, but the words won’t come. This is one of those books that took me down a road I didn’t anticipate, but I was happy to have traveled.
Andy Hollis is fascinated, some would say obsessed, with Joseph Avilla, a young artist who is painting flowers on the asphalt parking lot. Why? Some would ask, why not?
Joseph has a home, a mother and a father, but Andy only sees him painting in the parking lot at all hours of the day and night.
Andy is an art teacher and thinks Joseph needs to be in his class. I think the one who will learn the most is Andy.
We all march to a different drummer and have to find our own way, though a little help from our friends never hurts.
The characters and their motivations grow and change, as do the situations they find themselves in.
This is one of those reviews that was hard for me to write. I just can’t seem to find the words…BUT, once I started to read Work of Art, I couldn’t stop until I reached the end and I am really looking forward to the next one.
Ken La Salle writes with attitude, sarcasm, wit. and humor. His books always surprise me and that is a very good thing.
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Work of Art by Ken La Salle.
