The blue guitar by John Banville
Oliver Ponn steals things and it's not about the item just that he can get away with it.
His other passion was painting. Starts out with him being a kid of 8 or 9 and stealing a toy from a display at Christmas time.
Also all about his parents and the woman he cheats with while married to another.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
