The God of My Art: A Novel
Years after running away from home, gifted Helene must wrestle with her childhood if she wants to discover her true calling. She finds a muse in philosophical Matthew, who makes her past feel so far away…. but is it?
Matthew dreams of escaping the mundane by becoming a humanitarian worker in a war zone, but for now he is fond of quoting Nietzsche when he’s not off climbing mountains. As Helene’s growing infatuation with him unfolds, so does the true nature of her hero worship.
The God of My Art explores the idea of obsessive love as a source of inspiration for art. It is the coming-of-age story of an underprivileged artist coming into her own.
