Received today at Ryan's TOC. Will read and return. Thank you.

Took a while to get into this. Must have been about halfway through before I realized we were time travelling. Became much easier once I stopped trying to get a linear narration out of it.

Artist (and baker) Lucien Lessard is inspired by his model, Juliette, but she is not what she seems. Unnerved by her mysterious disappearances and vague explanations, Lucien and his friend, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, seek to unravel her complicated association with the pigment purveyor sometimes seen in her company who goes only by the name the Colorman.

Chapter guide available at the Author Guy's website with more info about the Impressionists and Paris.

Love the jarring colors of the syphilis poster, would like a print of that.

Back to TOC.

8 out of 10

It took me a wile to get through this book, but I did enjoy it. Not quite your typical Chris Moore novel, but still fun & steeped in art history.

Going back to ToC. Who's next?
