Summary Note "What I Loved begins in New York in 1975, when art historian Leo Hertzberg discovers an extraordinary painting by an unknown artist in a SoHo gallery. He buys the work and tracks down the artist, Bill Wechsler, and the two men embark on a lifelong friendship." "Leo's story, which spans twenty-five years, follows the evolution of the growing involvement between his family and Bill's - an intricate constellation of attachments that includes the two men, their wives, Erica and Violet, and their
children, Matthew and Mark. The families live in the same building in New York, share a house in Vermont during the summer, keep up a lively exchange of thoughts and ideas, and find themselves permanently altered by one another. Over the years, they not only enjoy love but endure loss - in one case, sudden, incapacitating loss; in another, a different kind, one that is hidden and slow growing, and which insidiously erodes the fabric of their lives."--BOOK JACKET.
