An enchanting story and a deeply human experience
Mary F. Burns, Historical Novel Society
Kostova wrote the "Historian" an excellent book. Swan Thieves is equally as good. Psychiatrist Marlow has a disturbed artist as a patient who has been incarcerated. The story unfolds as Marlow begins to unravel Robert Olner's story through contact with the woman in his life, and letters held by him from painters in the 1870's
This book is highly recommended reading, simply stunning.
