Fatima, Portugal (PressExposure) June 23, 2011 -- "Brushstrokes of a Gadfly" (Batalha Publishers, 1,040 pp. Hardcover, $49.95) reveals the story of Katherine Walsingham, a young artist from a High Society New York family and her quest to change the world with her art, lambasting the follies of the human race as she sees them with her scathing images, a biting gadfly questioning contemporary issues including nuclear power, religion, absurd holiday customs, the equality of women, corrupt government bureaucrats and America's definition of freedom.
Focusing on her activist art career, romance is the last thing on Katherine's mind and despite her best efforts to avoid any entanglements, falls in love with one of New York's most eligible bachelors. From her own reticence to become involved with anyone, to the rumours spread about his family, it is a relationship that seems doomed, but Katherine finds that love will blossom where it will and cannot be controlled or stifled, nor the joy and heartache that accompanies it. "Brushstrokes of a Gadfly" is a story brimming with vibrant and entertaining characters that only New York's High Society and art circles can provide, an amusing novel tinged with human tragedy. Features epic, non-stop reading in a unique continuous chapter format. Available in online book stores or may be ordered from local book stores.
"Brushstrokes of a Gadfly is a novel unveiling an artist's self-discovery. Katherine, a Socratic gadfly fired with idealism, is disgusted with the hypocrisy and injustice in the world, she endeavours to make her fellow citizens stop and reflect upon their culture, often landing in hot water for her efforts. Stepping out into the world, she has much to experience, braving harsh art critics, family tragedies, and of course, falling in love." - E.A. Bucchianeri
