Patrick Bringley worked for ten years as a guard in the galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Prior to that, he worked in the editorial events office at the New Yorker magazine. He lives with his wife and children in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. All the Beauty in the World, his first book, is a revelatory portrait of life in a great museum. It tells the moving story of the author's quest to find solace and meaning in art after his brother was diagnosed with fatal cancer, and he sought peace in the most beautiful place he knew.
