I had very high hopes for this novel because I LOVED Shop Girl and I liked Pleasure Of My Company too. This one was pretty uneventful and boring. I'm not sure who the target audience is for this book, but it wasn't me. I don't care much for the goings on in the art world. I might have been interested if the story itself was entertaining or engaging, but it was very flat and one-dimensional. I didn't care about the characters or their story. Blah.
