Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Yep, it was fantastic! I adored this novel! Best of the year so far! It is about a mentally ill but immensely talented artist who is arrested for attacking a painting. He is placed in a residential home for the mentally ill, and Andrew Marlowe, a psychiatrist and artist in his own right, is charged with healing him. In order to heal him, Marlowe must find out about his past, his loves, his obsessions. He uncovers a great tragedy in the Impressionist art world. This story made me want to pick up my own canvas and paint!
