Reviews

"A lusty romance, a murder mystery and a bit of Americana, all rolled into one big, fat historical romp . . . Lepore and Kamensky have re-created a fascinating world and brought history hotly alive."--San Francisco Chronicle

"An erudite and entertaining re-creation of colonial America on the brink of the Revolution."--New York Times Book Review

"Both frisky and learned . . . a treat."--Washington Post

"A rip-roaring yarn, a real romp . . . It's fantastic--the romance novel of your dreams."--Newsday

"A droll, edifying novel . . . Not since John Barth . . . has anyone rendered colonial America in such exquisite satirical strokes. Blindspot succeeds as raw entertainment; better, it soars as cunning academic revisionism."--Chicago Tribune

"A very smart book . . . [Blindspot] captures Colonial America's wit and vulgarity, its sensibility, sensuality and snobbery."--San Diego Union-Tribune
