"In this vital and heartbreaking collection of stories, Valerie Martin, the bestselling author of Mary Reilly and the internationally acclaimed Property, turns an unflinching eye upon artists - driven and blocked, desired and detested, infamous and sublime - as they struggle beneath the tyranny of Art to reconcile their audience with their muse." "A painter who owes his small success to a man he despises discovers that his passivity has cost him the love that might have set him free. A writer of modest talent encounters an old love who once betrayed him; now she repels him, yet the unfinished novel she leaves in his hands may surpass anything he could ever produce himself. An American poet in Rome finds herself forced to choose between her lover and a world so alien it takes her voice away. A printmaker, who has reached a certain age, enters so deeply into the magical world of her imagination that she can never find her way back."--BOOK JACKET.
