Peter Heller, the celebrated author of the breakout bestseller The Dog Stars, shares his second work of fiction--which Publishers Weekly has awarded a coveted Boxed and Starred Review--The Painter. When a brutal encounter rips artist Jim Stegner's life open, he is suddenly faced with his haunted past as he flees his quiet Colorado life and returns to New Mexico. A stunning, savage novel of art and violence, love and grief, The Painter is an achingly beautiful, wildly suspenseful novel about an artist trying to outrun his past.
