A Possible Life

Daniel Clevenger has a successful career as a professor and writer in Winnipeg. But his two university-aged sons are growing up and Daniel is still haunted by memories of his late wife. Then he meets Magda, an attractive, recently-divorced art historian, a specialist in the Italian Renaissance.

Magda encourages Daniel to join her for an academic conference in Tuscany. Daniel ignores Magda's chattering colleagues to immerse himself in the beauty, history, and sunshine of northern Italy.

Daniel becomes intrigued by the life of Masaccio, the Renaissance master who revolutionized painting with his depictions of emotion and use of light. He speculates on Masaccio's life, his art and loves, and his mysterious death.
