Part family drama and part self-actualization story, this is about Donna Greco, who in her
teens, subscribes to a conventional view of success in life and pushes her freewheeling,
artistic brother, Vincent to do the same. However, he remains single, childless, and subsists
in cramped apartments. She harbors guilt for her supposed failure to ensure his happiness
until she discovers a book of sketches he made of his life, which allows her to see his
internal joy and prompts her own journey of living authentically.
Thought-provoking, humorous, and filled with unforgettable characters, this book invites
readers to ponder what pictures they will have of themselves by the end of their lives.
