Stories or Art and Artists from seasoned Editor Diane Tesdell Secker of Everyman’s Pocket Classics is a fascinating collection of stories about artists and their creations over the last two centuries. Everyman also had interests in an area that could be called ArtFiction and have already published a poetry book. Though it does not have all drama of science fiction, tales about art can also be profound and suspenseful. One will find all sorts of stories about artists and their struggles here. The stories include some classic stories one might have heard of like “The Hunger Artist” from Franz Kafka and “The Artist of the Beautiful” from Nathaniel Hawthorn, but there are over a dozen stories collected some from classic writers, and some that popular readers might never have encountered before. All sorts of tales are presented, including genre tales of the fantastic and horrible, but also comedy and pathos.

The book does not have a central focus and some might think it meanders, but it is a big subject to cover. Sadly missing is some historical fiction about famous artists. All sorts of emotions are explored here about these pained and wonderful people who are devoted to creating and representing.
