The Sonoma Picasso
by Robert Smith
A humorous novel set in the picturesque town of Sonoma. A series of personal tragedies had turned the protagonist into an resentful recluse. A painter, his depression has reduced him to turning out trite pictures for tourists. In despair, and while consuming quantities of Bourbon, he hatches a plot to get back at the world. Will an encounter with a young woman change his life for better or worse?
