CHRISTINA BAKER KLINE

 

Four years after her critically acclaimed, bestselling debut, Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline has taken Andrew Wyeth’s iconic painting, Christina’s World, as muse for her striking new novel, A Piece of the World (William Morrow).

"A Piece of the World is a graceful, moving and powerful demonstration of what can happen when a fearless literary imagination combines with an inexhaustible curiosity about the past and the human heart: a feat of time travel, a bravura improvisation on the theme of art history, a wonderful story that seems to have been waiting, all this time, for Christina Baker Kline to come along and tell it.” --Michael Chabon.

“The inscrutable figure in the foreground of Wyeth’s Christina’s World is our American Mona Lisa, and Christina Baker Kline has pulled back the veil to imagine her rich story. Tender [and] tragic.” — Lily King.
