books ...

I am enjoying this book by Betsy Franco.  It is, so far about a college student, Jesse, touching Rodin's sculpture, Meditation ... and, Camille Claudel comes to life!   This was a win from Goodreads.    It is easy to read and so far - very interesting.   

Visited 2nd hand book store ... and picked up:
as it had photograph of Camille and information about how her presence changed the way he looked at women.   Per this book.

Of course, while browsing shelves - found this book about Virginia Gautreau, the woman in John Singer Sargent's portrait.  it is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 

Madame X (Madame Pierre Gautreau).


Oh, and I found Francine Prose!   I had  read a book review about this + was happy to get this hardcover one for $3.50.

What is your current book-in-hand?
