Product Details


“Lernet-Holenia’s language, translated from the German by Ignat Avsey, is quick and punchy, proving the perfect complement to this entertaining story… This slim novel explores the power of art to influence life and vice versa, as a young man catches a glimpse of an unfinished masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci.” — Shelf Awareness for Readers

“I thoroughly enjoyed this short book because of the characterization of Da Vinci and the little mystery surrounding the empty tomb of Mona Lisa.” — The Bookbinder’s Daughter

‘Brilliant… excellently written and fearsomely gripping’ The Times (of London)

‘Very few novels published in recent years match itsdaunting panache… a terrific book, one to read and then urge everyone else tofollow suit… truly clever’ EileenBattersby, Irish Times

‘A fascinating snapshot of Vienna between the wars, paceyand entertaining’ Guardian
