Book mole Larry Bowlden reviews Christina Baker Kline’s 2017 novel, A Piece of the World. Probably most of you know about the famous Andrew Wyeth painting, Christina’s World—a rather enigmatic painting of a girl or young woman sitting on the ground and looking up at a lonely looking house. What Kline does is create a fictional persona for Christina, that wonderfully captures the desolation and yearning of the painting.
