Christina Baker Kline is the No. 1 New York Times author of the novel, Orphan Train, which spent two years on the Times’ best-seller list. She visits Thurber House with her follow-up novel, A Piece of the World. Inspired by Andrew Wyeth’s mysterious and iconic painting, Christina’s World, Kline’s newest work is a stunning and atmospheric novel of friendship, passion and art.
As she did in Orphan Train, Kline weaves fact and fiction in a powerful novel that illuminates a little-known part of America’s history. She explores the flesh-and-blood woman behind the portrait. Told in evocative and lucid prose, A Piece of the World is a story about the burdens and blessings of family history, and how artist and muse can come together to forge a new and timeless legacy. Kline lives outside of New York City and on the coast of Maine.
