Summary

"A novel all about art's versatility. Borrowing from painting's fresco technique to make an original literary double-take, it's a fast-moving genre-bending conversation between forms, times, truths and fictions. There is a renaissance artist of the 1460's. There is the child of a child of the 1960's. Two tales of love and injustice twist into a singular yarn where time gets timeless, structural gets playful, knowing gets mysterious, fictional gets real and all life's givens get given a second chance"--Book jacket.
