the contrary of fine art past times athol dickson

About the book: When creative somebody Sheridan Ridler disappears into the Harlem River, the victim of a hit-and-run, his pump stops, too he sees something beyond description, something he comes to telephone telephone “Glory.” He doesn’t know what “Glory” is; he entirely knows he must paint it. His call for for “Glory” takes him all over the basis equally he tries to observe it inwards diverse religions.

The basis believes Ridler committed suicide, too for 25 years, Ridler does zero to contradict that belief. But when he comes to realize he needs to apologize for his past, those inwards the fine art basis are tipped off to his existence. Two people move desperate to observe him–the immature adult woman he never knew he had too the hit-and-run driver.

My take: The Opposite of Art is dissimilar much of today’s Christian fiction. H5N1 far outcry from the fluffy fiction I usually read, The Opposite of Art is, for lack of a improve word, literary. Dickson is a primary of magical realism, too I constitute myself swept into his world. And when the storey ended, I sighed inwards supreme satisfaction. The ending is perfect, too Dickson then beautifully led upwards to it, though I had no thought that was where he was taking me. The Opposite of Art is genuinely fine art inwards words.

I laissez passer it five out of five stars. If y’all similar reading “real” literature, you’ll relish this book!
