Reviews

"A thoroughly engrossing and informative story...Degas' paintings of the Paris Opera Ballet corps come to life in all their freshness and immediacy."--Historical Novels Review

"Like Tracy Chevalier, Wagner imagines how layers of meaning pervade works of art, but her real forte is detailing the sexual politics of poverty and evoking the rivalry among dancers, especially between stars and the newcomers who wish to replace them. Wagner's... abandonment of the masterpiece-in-the-making formula is a nice turn."--Publishers Weekly

"First-time novelist Wagner skillfully compresses the war into a series of brief letters in this engaging tale illuminating the dark side of French society high and low. With appearances by Degas' peers Cezanne and Monet, this fascinating visit to a bygone world of art and sex, war and love will draw many."--Booklist
