“A Piece of the World is a graceful, moving and powerful demonstration of what can happen when a fearless literary imagination combines with an inexhaustible curiosity about the past and the human heart: a feat of time travel, a bravura improvisation on the theme of art history, a wonderful story that seems to have been waiting, all this time, for Christina Baker Kline to come along and tell it.”
– Michael Chabon, New York Times bestselling author of Moonglow
Christina Baker Kline made an enormous impact on readers with her bestselling novel Orphan Train.
In her new novel, Kline turns her attention to the story of Andrew Wyeth’s real-life muse, Christina Olson. Told in evocative and lucid prose, A Piece of the World is a story about the burdens and blessings of family history, and how artist and muse can come together to forge a new and timeless legacy.
Kline’s books will be available for sale from our local bookseller Classic Lines.
