Every Saturday for the best part of a decade, thousands of people have been turning to the pages of the British newspaper The Independent to read Michael Glover’s thoughts about a particular piece of art. Pithy, astute, erudite, often humorous, and always engaging, these enormously popular essays are filled with compelling and entertaining observations as well as trenchant commentary about art, history, culture, and humanity. Collected for the first time in book form, this selection of 50 essays—a number of which have been exclusively written for this volume—is organized in an unexpected manner, allowing readers to see connections and juxtapositions between works. Their subjects cover an enormous span in terms of style, era, and geography—from Rembrandt’s Bathsheba with King David’s Letter and El Greco’s The Vision of St. John to Ai Wei Wei’s Iron Tree and Georgia O’Keeffe’s Single Lily with Red. All the texts are accompanied by full-color illustrations of the work in focus. With its compact format, this book is the perfect companion to a day at the museum, but also lends itself to leisurely dipping in-and-out of, either at home or as part of a daily commute. A great gift for art lovers, this book will also introduce Michael Glover to a host of new readers eager to learn about art from a charming and knowledgeable teacher.

Against a pastel backdrop of falling leaves and raindrops, a young boy learns how to make new friends and cherish the old. “Two hundred and sixty-nine days,” counts a freckle-faced, rosy-cheeked boy. His goodbye to his best friend is still fresh within his young heart. Though his companion has moved away, she sends surprise notes and chocolate bars by post, assuaging his pain and bringing a smile to his face. The support of his loving family and the arrival of a new neighbor with her striped cat combine with his optimism to slow the rainfall and welcome the possibility of a new friendship. Change is a constant in the worlds of adults and children alike. Friends Forever’s poignant story addresses change’s unexpected arrival and, through a softly colored palette, shows that change can be soothed by fond memories. The poetic text by Norwegian author Roald Kaldestad narrates the journey of the protagonist as he teaches readers to embrace the present and appreciate the joys of a bluer sky.
