520    Wendy is an aspiring contemporary artist whose adventures 
       have taken her to galleries, art openings, and parties in 
       Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Toronto. In 'Wendy, Master of Art',
       Walter Scott's sly wit and social commentary zero in on 
       MFA culture as our hero hunkers down to complete a master 
       of fine arts at the University of Hell in small-town 
       Ontario. Finally Wendy has space to refine her artistic 
       practice, but in this calm, all of her unresolved 
       insecurities and fears explode at full volume usually 
       while hungover. What is the post-Jungian object as symbol?
       Will she ever understand her course reading or herself? 
       What if she's just not smart enough? As she develops as an
       artist and a person, Wendy also finds herself in a 
       teaching position, mentoring a perpetually sobbing grade-
       grubbing undergrad. Scott's incisively funny take on art 
       school pretensions isn't the only focus. 'Wendy, Master of
       Art' explores the politics of open relationships and 
       polyamory, performative activism, the precariousness of a 
       life in the arts, as well as the complexities of gender 
       identity, sex work, drug use, and more. At its heart, this
       is a book about the give and take of community about 
       learning to navigate empathy and boundaries, and to 
       respect herself. It is deeply funny and endlessly 
       relatable as it shows Wendy growing from millennial art 
       party girl to successful artist, friend, teacher and 
       Master of Art.
