It's obvious on every page that Ms. Shulman is familiar with the world of the arts.

As there is easy listening music, her stories are easy reading...comfortable, almost familiar like revisiting a long forgotten but once loved place.

From the first pages I was captivated by Malcolm and his artistic quest. Against all odds he emerges as a successful sculptor. Not only does he face the usual difficulties of an artist, but he must also contend with his father who maliciously tries to destroy his work. His love and pursuit of Cynthia adds another dimension to the novel. "Turning Point" is the rivoting story of a tenacious artist who eventually triumphs in the face of adversity.

Bunny Shulman is a story teller. Her books are contemporary tales about people whose lives are affected by family and circumstance. As there is easy listening music, her stories are easy reading...comfortable, almost familiar like revisiting a long forgotten but once loved place. You sway with the rhythm of the words and see the sights of the story. Delightful, this book is respite from a busy world.

Format: Paperback
TURNING POINT by Bunny Shulman is a portrait of the young sculptor, Malcolm, untrained, unschooled, whose "good hands" also fix cars and make wonderful vegetable pyramids at the local market. Using cast-off found objects, he welds amazing pieces in his backyard garage. Scorned by a brutal father, Malcolm finally has a chance to join an artists' cooperative in New York and leave everything behind. Shulman's description of the 60s New York art scene is spot-on. I enjoyed her obvious insiders' knowledge of the sculptor's use of "objets trouves". She takes the reader step by step through the creation of massive turning sculptures, referencing Calder. The book weaves themes of guilt, gratitude and sensuality in this story of Malcolm's artistic coming of age. A good read!

Bunny Shulman has a great gift for dialogue. The story moves along in a tempo that makes it hard to put the book down. I have read all of her books, all enjoyable, this one is a ten!
