The Art of Change is a great story about love, acceptance, and friendship. Set in the fast-paced life of New York City, this novel discusses different life issues that average New Yorkers face every day. The highly eclectic mix of characters – led by a neurotic gallery owner who denies she has found love with a sex therapist, a very competitive businessman raising an equally competitive teenage daughter, a Ukrainian wannabe socialite looking for love and being loved by her Corsican chef husband who seems content in life and doesn’t admit to being a gay until he meets this art critic who he unknowingly falls in love with, and the art critic’s detached father who finds home and acceptance with the Ukrainian socialite – will make you laugh and cry with them as they go through their daily life challenges on how to accept change and find acceptance.
