Take an extraordinary stroll through the Metropolitan Museum of Art via this luminous memoir! When Patrick Bringley lost his 26-year-old older brother to cancer, he left his fledgling career at the New Yorker to "drop out of the forward-marching world and spend all day tarrying in an entirely beautiful one" by getting a job as a guard at the Met. Graced with passion and insight, All the Beauty in the World offers a transcendent insider's tour of the hallowed New York institution, as Bringley looks at each work of art historically, metaphorically, or simply with appreciation for the astonishing "mystery, beauty, and pain" that great art imparts. Don't miss this transformative journey!
