A painting links a rare female artist of the Dutch Golden Age with a scion and grad student in "Mad Men" era Manhattan.  Developed, simpatico characters and finely wrought double-crossing in past and present Netherlands, Manhattan, and Sydney make this a very satisfying read. Great for summer, travel, or book groups.

As a bookseller, I read a lot of books. I’ve read a whole heap of staff-pick-able ones in the past few months. But this little aliebn has stayed with me since July; I've read and re-read it and found something new every time. Funny, poignant, and earnest, this book about a lonely alien his animal friends offers plenty of insight on what it means to be human.

Simply magnificent! Tan gives small snippets of Grimm's fairy tales, each accompanied by a photograph of an exquisite sculpture. The pairings are dark, stunning, and utterly brilliant. With introductions by Neil Gaiman and Jack Zipes, not to mention lists of additional resources, this is a treasure for any fairy tale fan and is destined to be poured over again and again. A masterpiece!
