Trompe L'oeil

[SUMMARY] [REVIEWS] [COMMENTS] [INTERVIEW] [VIDEO]
When Maxwell, a Depression-era artist, spurns the attentions of his sponsor, he ends up cursed to live out eternity in a painting. The man who cursed him delighted in playing the exhibitionist for Maxwell, and by the time the old man dies, Maxwell longs for his life and body back but he's pretty sure he never wants to watch anyone have sex ever again. Until he discovers who his new owner is.

Tyler isn't sure what to do with a life-sized painting of a nude man, but it was a gift from his sister to ease the pain of a disastrous break up and subsequent coming out. The gorgeous subject of the painting disappeared without a trace decades ago, rumored to have been killed by the painting's previous owner in a jealous rage.

Becoming more and more fascinated by the man in his painting, Tyler uses his resources as a history professor to solve the mystery of Maxwell's disappearance. He finds himself spending more time in his bedroom, talking to the painting, researching and aching to know the man in person. Maxwell falls under Tyler's sweet spell, discovering the thickness of canvas might be an insurmountable distance to cross.
