"I read this book in one-go - it's such a cool story about one man's obsessive artistic vision. He paints every year, day after day, until he's covered miles of canvas in images about his life, his family and his neighbors. Since he can't speak it's his primary form of expression. Somehow, he never cares whether anyone sees this bizarre creation and when he dies his sons have to figure out what on earth to do with it. I won't give away the story, but it's really worth reading."
