Finding himself institutinalized after an apparent accident, Julius struggles to remember his previous life while translating as much Western Culture as he can for use in the art movement he proposes to launch from his sickbed. He knows that he must appear deranged for his work to be taken seriously--and to ensure his continued care--but he cant get anything done--and theres a nurse who might be interested... --So what is it--the description or the thing? Should he pretend hes better for love or describe his illness and possibly stay sick? And what then--what if it works?The Love Artist is a beautiful book. Smart and enjoyable, it works to leave nothing behind. It is truly a modern American classic.
