Product Description

The life story of Maria Altmann inspired The 2015 film "Woman in Gold" starring Helen Mirren.The Accidental Caregiver debuted as a stageplay at the Robert Moss Theater in New York City on January 26, 2015."From the most unlikely of unlikely romances comes a deeply felt, touching, humorous exploration of what love and age mean in today's world. I can't recommend this book highly enough." -Stan Evans, Emmy-award winning writer, and author of Box of Mustaches*  *  *When thirty-two-year-old actor Gregor Collins reluctantly interviewed for a job as a caregiver more out of a favor to a friend - he had no idea his life was about to change forever.Seconds into the chance meeting in 2008 with, it would turn out, a world-renowned Holocaust refugee named Maria Altmann, there was an unexplainable magic in the air - it felt as if they had already met. And Collins was suddenly thrown into a situation with which he had never before been confronted: caring for someone other than himself.Gregor offers us a personal and unprecedented look at Maria over the three intimate years he cared for her - her thrilling escape from the Nazis, her fight and subsequent win in the landmark Supreme Court Case to return original Gustav Klimt artwork that belonged to her family in Austria, and the extraordinary people she met along the way. But the real heart of the story transcends mere historical facts.Through a refreshingly raw portrayal of their unlikely and unbreakable bond, imbued with humorous, candid anecdotes about his mercurial relationship with Hollywood, Gregor takes us on a deeply emotional journey of how he opened up his heart to a 92-year-old woman in need - and in turn experienced the love he had been searching for his entire life.
