Detailed plot synopsis reviews of A Piece of the World
Art can lie to you. If you live a sad life, some fraud can convince you that you are happy if he has the right personality and can draw a painting of you showing you young and happy. But art cannot redraw reality. Only reality can redraw reality. Christina is suckered by the "beauty" of the painting showing her lying crippled in the grass. I think this elaborate deception, or self-deception, only makes the story sadder.
Some people like being miserable. I strongly got the impression that Christina liked being miserable. She refused to go to a doctor for many years, and refused to get a sedentary job, like teaching, and she refused to use a wheelchair. I think she liked crawling around on the ground, I think she enjoyed being unhappy.Click here to see the rest of this review
Even crippled girls can get some action. Despite her crippled body Walton was still interested in her for a time. That proves that every woman has a v_gina and like the window of a candy store, can attract customers if the price is right.
