I just read 'The Salon' by Nick Bertozzi. I have been following him for a while. I really enjoyed 'The Masochists' and couldn't wait to read this new book. I first discovered it on Serializer and really dug it. It's a murder mystery set against the backdrop of the modernist painting movement and the birth of Cubism that went down in Paris. Lots of Absinthe drinking and fun times. The main characters include the Steins, Picasso, and Braque. Amazing artwork in this thing and the color choices in this thing are genius. Now I have to read the book Bertozzi did with Jason Lutes about Houdini.
