Description

The widow of two renowned artists, seventy-nine-year-old Hope Chafetz is herself a painter of some merit, with a career spanning the post-war revolution in American art. When she agrees to speak with a journalist, she expects the usual two-hour interview. What takes form is a full day of Hope's reminiscences and recollections, beginning with her courageous move to New York as a naive twenty-year-old and ending with her sturdy passage into solitary, meditative old age in rural Vermont.show more
