From the Publisher

Almost twenty-five years after the infamous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum—still the largest unsolved art theft in history—one of the stolen Degas paintings is delivered to the Boston studio of a young artist. Claire Roth has entered into a Faustian bargain with a powerful gallery owner by agreeing to forge the Degas in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But as she begins her work, she starts to suspect that this long-missing masterpiece—the very one that had been hanging at the Gardner for one hundred years—may itself be a forgery. The Art Forger is a thrilling novel about seeing—and not seeing—the secrets that lie beneath the canvas.

Like all archaeology in and around the conflicted, contested Holy Land, the story of the Dead Sea Scrolls is intensely politica

Gish Jen on the Profound Differences Between Chinese and American Culture

Several years ago, the Chinese-American novelist Gish Jen came across the story of a Chinese teenager who applied to the elite Milton Academy in Massachusetts. The girl had top-notch test scores and great essays, and her interview on Skype showed a profound command of English. She was accepted to Milton. A few months later, representatives from Milton picked up what they thought was their stellar foreign student. The Chinese girl they met at the local airport spoke halting, substandard English. It turned out that the girl they were picking up was the sister of the great student, sent in her p

05 An Underground Art Crawl

1 Start your stroll with one of the best gelatos in the city at Gelato Davvero (get there early to avoid the lines) (Praça São Paulo 1), then head along the Praça São Paulo to GIVLOWE (Praça São Paulo 13–15), a café and gallery that walks the line of visual overload. The walls are crowded with art—like intricate collages from artist Burry Buermans—and sculptures are nestled between plants and around mismatched furniture, including a hammock. 2 Next, walk for a few minutes to VERSO BRANCO (Rua da Boavista 132–134), a small, split-level décor shop, atelier, and gallery space with an emphasis on
