The Art of Traveling Strangers

for lovers of art and travelers at heart


I'm working on a book called The Art of Traveling Strangers. Here's what it's about:

In the 1980’s, Claire, a hapless art history professor desperate to escape her shattered reality, accepts a summer job in Europe as a personal art guide for an eccentric stranger. But when her troubles follow her, Claire learns she must draw on the wisdom of the old masters, the lessons from her past, and even the insights of her quirky traveling companion to reimagine her reality or lose the most precious thing in it.

This enlightening junket through the museums of Italy and Paris reveals that reality, like art, is all a matter of perception.
