Reviews

"The strength of Quattrocento lies in its scope and fearlessness." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"An intriguing first novel, rich with historical detail and combining art, physics, time travel and a love story." --Booklist

"Jim McKean appears out of nowhere to fashion a high-caliber, genre-busting, page-turning romp between two passionate artists who literally challenge the laws of nature in order to be together. Bravo" --Jenny McPhee, author of The Center of Things
