DescriptionIn 1975 art historian Leo Hertzberg discovers an extraordinary painting by an unknown artist in a New York gallery. He buys the work, tracks down its creator, Bill Weschler, and the two men embark on a life-long friendship. This is the story of their intense and trouble relationship, of the women in their lives and their work, of art and hysteria, love and seduction and their sons - born the same year but whose lives take very different paths.

Reviews for What I Loved
What I Loved
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. For the first 135 pages I was wondering what everyone was raving about. However I realised that the author was creating the base for the rest of the book, developing the characters and relationships with great care and detail, and emersing the reader in the New York art world. The descriptions allow you to see the paintings the artist is creating. When I got to chapter two the book became very compelling and the description of the tragedy and the way the characters dealt with it was amazing. There are so many sub themes of nature/nurture, hysteria, different perspectives and the perspective of the third, and the tragedy of life itself and the twists it presents to us. It is a book I am sure I will remember. by Nicole Peacocke
