Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE FORGER'S SPELL
"A gripping historical narrative...Dolnick, a veteran science writer, knows his way around a canvas...The Forger's Spell has raised provocative questions about the nature of art and the psychology of deception."--Washington Post Book World
"Dolnick brilliantly re-creates the circumstances that made possible one of the most audacious frauds of the 20th century. And in doing so Dolnick plumbs the nature of fraud itself...an incomparable page turner."--Boston Globe
"[Dolnick] tells his story engagingly and with a light touch. He has a novelist's talent for characterization, and he raises fascinating questions."--New York Times Book Review
"The Forger's Spell is an excellent read, a swift and astute narrative written from many complex perspectives to great effect."--Chicago Sun-Times
"Pacing and prose as gripping as those of the best mystery novelist...The Forger's Spell is simply spellbinding."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"An engaging and highly amusing account of a clever craftsman. . . . On all those levels this is a delightful foray into art history and psychology"--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
