Reviews for The Muralist

#1 Indie Next Pick for November!

“B.A. Shapiro once again pens the art world into vivid, sensual life. If you liked The Art Forger, you’re going to love The Muralist.”
—Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice


“An expertly constructed, riveting tale of art, politics, love and consequences in the Depression Era. I admire so much the way B.A. Shapiro vividly brigs to life this passionate world of the past—it rings with originality and authenticity. What a compelling read!”
—Jami Attenberg, author of The Middlesteins


“I’m a great fan of B.A. Shapiro, especially her new novel The Muralist. It is a tantalizing mystery, as well as an involving meditation on the meaning of art over time.”
—Scott Turow, author of Identical


“Spellbinding. With a starry cast (Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning, Krasner, even Eleanor Roosevelt), fans of Shapiro’s earlier art-mystery hit, The Art Forger, will not be disappointed.”
—William Landay, author of Defending Jacob
