The Painted Kiss by Elizabeth Hickey
-about Gustav Klimt and his relationship with Emilie Floge (that's her portrait). Art in turn-of-last century Vienna. Beautiful book.

The Changeling of Finnistuath by Kate Horsley

-about a girl named Grey raised as a boy in 14th century Ireland. Religion, plague, identity crisis. And sex. Lot's of sex. A strange book, but I read it in a day.

The Last of her Kind by Sigrid Nunez
- haven't really gotten into this one yet. About roommates from different classes in the '60s. I picked it up for the cover art.

Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld.

-not quite into this one yet either. But I read her last book a month ago and thought it was quite funny
, in an ironic way.
