In this highly accessible, stylish work of imaginative nonfiction, Lipton re-creates a provocative figure out of 19th-century art history--Victorine Meurent, Edouard Manet's favorite model. At once biography, memoir, and compelling detective story, Alias Olympia is on the cutting edge of contemporary trends in critical writing.
