Summary
Takes place in one day, a day that contains much conversation and some rain. The 78-year-old painter, Hope Chafetz, who in the course of her eventful life has been Hope Ouderkirk, Hope McCoy, and Hope Holloway, answers questions put to her by a New York interviewer, and recapitulates, through the story of her own career, the triumphant, poignant saga of postwar American art. In the evolving relation between the two, the interviewer and interviewee move in and out of the roles of daughter and mother, therapist and patient, predator and prey, supplicant and idol
