On my first date with an artist who would eventually become my husband, I said, Look at me, look at me, look at me! I am also an artist and I wanted him to know, from the beginning, that I not only live for my work, but that I need an audience to view that work. Eventually my husband gave me A Hunger Artist by Franz Kafka.
