    this book is maddening on the one hand, its handling of artistic frustration and the desire to excel as an artist is intelligent and well considered, but on the other hand, this story is just another in a long line of loser male protagonist is rescued by manic pixie dream girl stories literally dream girl is initially presented as an actual angel sweeping down from heaven, male protagonist professes to dream girl i love you after having had a grand total of one full conversation w this book is maddening on the one hand, its hand...
