Minutes after revolutionary artist Marcel Duchamp died, his longtime friend and collaborator Man Ray took his picture. Using its example, this small gem of a book asks: can death--and, by extension life--be art? The best book about art I've read in years--it will stay with you long after reading it. ~ Reviewed by Ramsay Eyre

Published: Knopf Books for Young Readers - September 11th, 2007

A hauntingly cinematic portrayal of a young girl's story in the days of Nazi Germany. When Liesel's foster family hides a runaway Jew in their basement, her world becomes entangled with questions of loss and her own mysterious past. Brilliantly written and overflowing with powerful imagery, it reads almost like a lucid dream told by a narrowing narrator - this book is not to be missed. Read it - it might be life changing! ~ Reviewed by Ramsay Eyre
