Product Details

Fiction. Art. Memoir. Poetry. Drama. This small book contains various pieces—memoir, short stories, poems, a one-act play, some artwork—all done as humorous commentary on life. A former TV host for studies of museum art, Connor is best known for his paintings. His earlier book, Masters in Pieces (Journey Editions, 1997), illustrated not only his skill but also his humor in putting great works of art together. Of it, Eric P. Nash wrote in The New York Times: "...Magically, Connor whisks away the artifice of art history to forge some deeper connections, and makes us smile all the while."
