Grey may have “50 Shades,” but most months have “31 Days,” a tale of art and seduction.
In 1963, Marcia Gloster, who grew up in Scarsdale, spent one summer month studying art at Oskar Kokoschka’s School of Vision in Salzberg. She learned about more than art as she fell in love with charismatic painter Bill Thomson, a married man. “31 Days: A Memoir of Seduction” (The Story Plant) paints a portrait of postwar Salzberg, a tense, changing world, along with one of the artist as a young woman, discovering art, sex and love.
