Tavarelli’s <i>Star Fragments</i>

BC Fine Arts Professor of the Practice Andrew Tavarelli has traveled extensively in Bali and Southeast Asia—always with a journal, a set of watercolors, and a camera. Material from Tavarelli’s travel journal provided the basis for his unpublished novel, False Stars. Now, Tavarelli has taken passages from that book and combined them with watercolors to create a new novel, Star Fragments. The author/artist, who believes in the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words,” writes in the book’s preface that “Just as each [narrator’s] voice adds to the richness of the story, the imagery expands the narrative and makes it tangible.” View or download here.
