The story of the restorative power of art in one man's life, set against the sweep of the twentieth century-from Toronto in the '20s and '30s, through the killing fields of World War II, to 1960s Sicily.
"Bold and resplendent, yet reduced to a singular essence, All the Colour in the World is a unique style piece and a moving evocation of character. Leave it to CS Richardson to find a way to paint with words." -Nita Prose, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maid
