Published: David R. Godine Publisher - June 1st, 2016

An illuminating biography on Henry Beston, author of The Outermost House. A prolific contributor to 20th century naturalism and conservationist movement, Beston is often rightly compared to nature writers Henry David Thoreau and Rachel Carson. Payne's writing, while comprehensive, is not academic, and makes for an enjoyable read about this extraordinary man.

Published: Skira Rizzoli - October 21st, 2014

This book does follow the alphabet's progressive order but in a unique, clever, and humorous fashion, most logical to a child. Kalman's distinctive illustrations of objects hand-selected from the Cooper Hewitt Museum are the cherry on top of this artistic, alphabetical oddity.

Published: Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill - May 21st, 2013

A novel about a young woman who is asked to paint a reproduction of one of the stolen paintings from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, although questions arise about how her copy may be related to the stolen original. The writing about art is absolutely breathtaking, and there are a few subplot threads that intersect and weave together a gorgeous narrative.
