The Painter

The Painter

Peter Heller

The minute I set this book down I felt the need to recommend it to everyone I know. If you’re a fan of Breaking Bad do yourself a favor and read this book. You will find little sparks of Walter White within main character Jim Stegner. But what really sparkles is Heller's prose. I loved every word. It was beautiful and brutal. Sad and funny. Everything you have come to expect from Heller. He’s quickly becoming my favorite modern writer. I’ll be handselling this book at WORD Jersey City without a doubt.
