Benchere in Wonderland: A Novel by Steven Gillis

A widowed sculpturer, still very much in love with his wife, looks for ways to redefine himself and the purpose of his art. The questions at play in Benchere in Wonderland, address the impact of art and the artist on the world at large. Building in part on Saul Bellow's Henderson the Rain King, where the imperative howl is I want, in Benchere we have a character who howls I will! But a will toward what? After a successful career as both an architect and a sculptor, Benchere is left to question his celebrity. Determined to create a sculpture that celebrates nothing more than the pure beauty of art, Benchere heads into the African desert where, unexpectedly, he is followed by a divergent group of people. The novel addresses issues of family and love, loss and responsibility, the natural course of community, how societies rise, and what is the purpose of the individual in the world closest to him and the world at large?
