The quintessential tortured artist, Vincent Spinetti falls prey to poverty, illness, alienation, parental neglect, alcoholism, nervous breakdowns, and unrequited love, unaware that these torments are caused by the secret manipulations of New Renaissance, an organization testing the idea that art results from suffering. By the author of Anomalies.
