Starred review: ...complex, enthralling novel is concerned with relations between art and commerce, and nature and commerce; the importance of the past; the everyday oppression of capitalism; and how art may shape history." Ray Olson --Booklist
"...rich and strange...an unusual, haunting tale from a distinctive new voice." --Lisa Tuttle i --Sunday Times of London
Robert Freeman Wexler gives us a beautifully rendered tale of artistic obsession. An artist discovers a painting and must learn all he can about the woman depicted in it. Eventually, his quest takes him across boundaries where the present, the past and the world of the painting blur. I was knocked out by the imaginative storytelling, and the richly evocative language used to tell it. This is not my usual fare, but I was engrossed from page one.
