Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ingeniously and skillfully plotted.” Huffington Post
“Precise and exciting…Readers seeking an engaging novel about artists and art scandals will find The Art Forger rewarding for its skillful balance of brisk plotting, significant emotional depth, and a multi-layered narration rich with a sense of moral consequence.” Washington Post
“A cleverly plotted art-world thriller/romance…Convincingly researched, engaging storytelling. Intelligent entertainment.” Kirkus Reviews
“Filled with delightful twists, turns, and ruminations on what constitutes truth in art.” Publishers Weekly
“By page two of this novel, the reader is fully engrossed into the world of struggling artist Claire Roth, nicknamed “The Great Pretender” who copies famous paintings for a website called Reproductions.com…A highly recommended debut that would be great for book discussion groups.” Library Journal
“Classy and pleasurably suspenseful…An entrancingly visual, historically rich, deliciously witty, sensuous, and smart tale of authenticity versus fakery in which Shapiro artfully turns a clever caper into a provocative meditation on what we value most.” Booklist (starred review)
