“I know it sounds preposterous. It is preposterous; even so, it works quite well. The novel vibrates with a kinetic, almost unchanneled energy. Greenan ... has great fun with words, place-names, jokes, anecdotes, a little essay about the pleasures of lying under the bed, a little short story about poisoning a singularly vicious cat. Granted you can find a painter the equal of Leonardo, Greenan’s explanation of how the forgery can be made to fool the experts is convincing. It is a book of many parts— all of them delightful –but, mostly it is very funny, a book of exuberant comedy.”
