Therese Anne Fowler's six favorite books

Therese Anne Fowler's new book is Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald.

One of Fowler's six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan

This recent novel imagines the belle-epoque lives of two sisters, including the girl who inspired Degas' sculpture Little Dancer Aged 14. Here is the unglamorous side of Paris and art and aspiration and desire, and the lives of young women whose opportunities to even survive, let alone thrive, are few.
Read about the other books on Fowler's list.

The Painted Girls is one of the Barnes & Noble Review's top five books on artists who have captivated our culture.
