ÂAn inspired book of short stories that explores the profound relationship between life and artÂ While mourning the loss of his son in the Vietnam War, an Italian chef reflects on the importance of art for future generations. An American boy retreats inward after he kills his younger brother in a farming accident, finding solace in classical music and a friendship with his teacher. Placing the artist at the center of his stories, Gardner produces a series of beautiful moments where art must act as a life-affirming forceâ€”and creates a collection of poignant narratives as a result.Â In The Art of Living, author John Gardner brings his most significant themes to life with stunning eloquence and masterful narration.Â This ebook features a new illustrated biography of John Gardner, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Gardner family and the University of Rochester Archives.
