"Peter Heller, the celebrated author of the breakout best-seller The Dog Stars, returns with an achingly beautiful, wildly suspenseful second novel about an artist trying to outrun his past. Years ago, a well-known expressionist painter named Jim Stegner shot a man in a bar. The man lived, Jim served his time, and he has learned to live with the dark impulses that sometimes overtake him. Jim enjoys a quiet life in the valleys of Colorado. He works with a lovely model, he doesn't drink, he goes fly fishing in the evenings. His paintings fetch excellent prices at a posh gallery in Santa Fe. He is--if he can admit it--almost happy. One day, driving down a dirt road, Jim sees a man beating a small horse. Jim leaps out of the truck, tackles the man, and bloodies his nose. The man is Dell, a cruel hunting outfitter notorious among locals. Jim cannot shake his rage over the little horse. The next night, under a full moon, telling himself he is just going night fishing, he returns to the creek where Dell has his camp and kills him. As Jim tries to come to terms with what he has done, he must evade the police, navigate his own conscience, and escape the members of Dell's clan set on revenge. And he paints the whole time; trying to make sense of his actions. Traveling from the rough adobe cottages and rivers of Colorado to the bright streets and galleries of Santa Fe, aching with grief and transcendent with beauty, The Painter is a story about art and love and violence, and using the remnants of hardship to create a rich life"--"Peter Heller, the celebrated author of the breakout best seller The Dog Stars, returns with an achingly beautiful, wildly suspenseful second novel about an artist trying to outrun his past"--… (mais)

adult fiction/suspense. Painter/fisherman/murderer? more like. And surfer. I enjoyed this one ok, and I liked The Dog Stars, but I'm thinking if Heller writes another fiction, he may want to stray from his macho-yet-sensitive narrator a bit. ( )

Many thanks to Goodreads' First Reads giveaway for an advanced copy of the new work of fiction by Peter Heller, who is quickly becoming one of my most favorite contemporary authors. In The Painter, we meet Jim Stegner, a reclusive and notoriously temperamental painter of some prominence who's been dealt quite the hand in life. He has just escaped Taos for Paonia, CO, for a little peace and quiet, but everything gets mangled when he crosses paths with the notoriously abusive outfitter/poacher Dellwood Siminoe.

I found a lot of similarities between The Painter and The Dog Stars. My guess is if you loved the The Dog Stars as I did, you'll dig what's going on here. This is all more or less fairly rooted in reality as opposed to a post-apocalyptic situation, but it is so atmospheric, you'll be torn between devouring the pages and taking your time basking in Heller's prose. I thought I might have a problem with the descriptions of Jim's paintings, but I really liked how Heller incorporated each painting into this almost comedic snowballing plot. I loved how Jim, like Hig in The Dog Stars, seems to get by more by luck than by ability, especially in how no one seems to really want to prosecute a relatively good man who seems fairly connected to a couple murders of really bad men. Jim's flashbacks with Alce are both warming and heartbreaking. The only thing holding me back from 5 stars is the ending...I've got to think on that for a while. I really liked the inevitable twist in the epilogue, but the conclusion felt a little too pat for me. Almost. No spoilers here--you just have to read it for yourself. ( )

Excellent book - the plot moves so fast through unexpected waters! A tortured artist with a checkered past finds his life getting even more complicated through a series of unexpected events. I give this book my highest recommendation!! ( )

Really liked this one. I had read and liked The Dog Stars, and when I happened to see The Painter in a book store (I hadn't known Heller had written another novel), I snapped it right up. It is I suppose sort of a rugged, manly story of a painter trying to figure out how to live in the world a few years after a traumatic event wrecks his life.

The prose is lyrical and often lovely. The story tugged me right along. There's something like profundity here and there about art, about suffering, about perseverance as an inmate of the world.

There's also lots of writing about fishing. If you find that sort of thing tiresome, this might not be the book for you. As I'm trying to pick up the habit, the fishing passages were well timed for me. ( )

Amazing writer! One of the best around. Loved "The Dog Stars" and now this... Art, fly fishing, love, grief, violence, extraordianry grief - it's all there and told in a raw, exquisite language. Can't wait for whatever he writes next. ( )

Nestled down in all this high rough country like a train set.
Sofia pulls up in the Subaru she calls Triceratops. It's that old. I can hear the rusted out muffler up on the county road, caterwauling like a Harley, hear the drop in tone as it turns down the steep gravel driveway. The downshift in the dip and dinosaur roar as it climbs again to the house. Makes every entrance very dramatic, which she is.
"I'm young," she says. It's a simple statement, incontrovertible, and it stabs me with something like pain in the middle of my laughter.
The afternoon is somber under cloud, then the edge tugs away and the water sparks in a sudden sweep of sunlight.
I almost cannot contain–the rage and the tenderness together like a boiling weather front.
