The spellbinding new novel from the award-winning author of "The Caprices" and "A Carnivore s Inquiry" transports us to a mysterious world of deception, political intrigue, and desire. In the summer of 1963, American Rupert Brigg travels to Greece to collect classical pieces for his Uncle William s art collection. Rupert s first discovery, however, is that Athens is a shadowy place that hides a tangle of fork-tongued diplomacy and duplicitous women, a city of replicas and composites that, like a hall of mirrors, calls to question what is real and what is false. Journeying to the secluded island of Aspros, among a circle of artists and aristocrats, each with their own secrets, Rupert finds the very pieces he s searching for, but can he escape the tragedy that ended his brief marriage? As beautiful as Rupert s discoveries are, beneath the surface lurk rumors of insurrection, fabrication, and even murder. Seductive, compelling, and sly, "Forgery" is a sophisticated book about the value and meaning of art, love, and the corrosive power of grief."
