Read an excerpt from The Muralist, the next book from The Art Forger author B.A. Shapiro -- exclusive
B.A. Shapiro captivated us in 2012 with her “addictive” novel The Art Forger. Now, she’s back with another thrilling tale from the art world, set right on the brink of World War II. The Muralist features appearances by some fictionalized familiar faces: Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, William de Kooning, and Eleanor Roosevelt, as artist Alizée Benoit tries to make a name for herself while trying to procure visas for her Jewish family trapped in Nazi-run France.
