Robert is at a crossroads. Just retired from a brilliant career as a UN manager in humanitarian aid, he could work as a high-level consultant or pursue his childhood dream of becoming an artist. He chooses the latter to the dismay of his wife Kay. Twenty years his junior, Kay is a lover of Contemporary Art, deeply involved in her work as the owner of a trendy art gallery in New York. She is horrified by his academic paintings. They fight over Art - he’s square, she’s cool - but more separates them than diverging views on Art. A secret Kay has never revealed weighs on their marriage and threatens to break it apart…

This is the second edition, fully revised and with new material, of “A Hook in the Sky” (published in 2012). In contrast to the first edition that reflected only Robert’s point of view, we now have Kay with all her emotions and opinions. As a result, the book resonates with the complexities and wistfulness of mature passion and is focused on romance the second time around. The title was changed to reflect this new dimension.
