“In The Bohemians, Laurie Blauner artfully captures the Jazz Age–a period that is liberating, decadent, and bewildering for Leon, the accountant, but even more so for the artist Lil, who, despite her her Bohemian recklessness and disdain for social norms, is overwhelmed by the rapidly changing boundaries of her world. Tight as a stretched canvas and colorful as a still-life of split-open ripe fruit, Blauner’s prose captures both the gullibility and skepticism of her characters amid the naivete and boldness of the time. The crafty inclusion of sensationalist news stories, ads for remedies, and cameos by F. Scott Fitzgerald and others of the famed Algonquin makes this novel, in the lingo of the day, the ‘bee’s knees.'” — Donna Miscolta, author of When the de la Cruz Family Danced
“Blauner’s language is exquisite. Every page has another delight, the unexpected turn or phrasing, the striking detail and vivid image. In this story of artists and lovers, you’ll feel you’ve entered one of the character’s paintings, the brushstrokes sure, the colors fantastical. It’s wonderful reading prose written by a poet.” — Sharman Apt Russell, author of Hunger: an Unnatural History, and Standing in the Light
