Bookworm, writer, radio host—I blog about history, fiction, and publishing in the Internet Age. You can find the full blog on my website. This space is for books.
For my reactions to this book and, more important, B. A. Shapiro's story of how she came to write it and what it means to her, see my interview with her at http://newbooksinhistoricalfiction.com/2013/06/18/b-a-shapiro-the-art-forger-algonquin-books-2012/.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher so that I could prepare for the interview. As a general rule, I do not rate books whose authors I interview for New Books in Historical Fiction.
