The Color Wheel - Katie McDougall

SKU: 9789910000911
The Color Wheel began as a short story in 2005 and over the next seven years blossomed into a novel as though of its own volition. Inside its pages, a restless, small-town teenager is lured to a potters’ compound in the remote hills of New Mexico by her previously absentee mother; an Oregon commune is used as a laboratory for hippy happiness wherein spawns an unlikely and uneven romance; a struggling plein air painter is plagued by paralysis in her art, her job, and her love life after an inappropriate encounter with one of her high school students. Through these seemingly disparate plot lines, the novel weaves together the story of Missy Burbank and her divided, eccentric family over several decades and through a litany of mistakes in life and love toward a deeper understanding of what it means to live authentically.
