Book review

'The Unexpected Legacy of Great Aunt Vic' is a tale of two women - one, Jane, a young graduate from Glasgow School of Art and the other, Jennifer, in her late forties and recently widowed. Each finds herself at a turning point in life. Jane believes art is all and has no wish to involve herself with commercial, or material, things and is disillusioned with life in small town Scotland. When the exhibition she and her partner Joe stage gets poor reviews she is forced to take a job in a local supermarket while Joe returns to Glasgow to paint theatre scenery.
Joe has a criminal history. He was a prisoner in a Young Offenders Institution before he met Jane at art college. He is, in Jane's eyes, a persuasive character who believes that theft (and sex) is, or at least can be, art.
After meeting the wealthy Jennifer Miles Jane agrees to redesign the interior of her home although she has reservations about 'the Miles project', not least about whether it can ever be art.
As Jane says herself, she 'just toys with ideas sometimes, the way artists have to use their imagination'. When her thoughts turn to the creation of 'fake' art and even destruction, life imitating art takes on a new, and terrible, meaning.
