As The Devil Wears Prada demystified the world of high fashion, this funny and insightful debut novel dishes the crazy and captivating Manhattan art scene. When painter Jeffrey Finelli is run over by a cab, the art world clamors for the instantly in-demand work by the late “emerging artist”—especially an enormous painting called Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him.

Gallery receptionist and aspiring artist Mia McMurray fi nds herself at the center of the hype. She is an amused witness as a Birkin-toting collector, a well-muscled Irish artist, a real estate baron, and Lulu herself, the artist’s niece and muse, battle over the brand-new masterpiece. In the midst of the madness, Mia finds her own creative expression and artistic identity, not to mention love.

“Danielle Ganek captures the absurdity of the New York art scene with wide and witty brushstrokes.”
Vanity Fair

“[A] glossy, amusing story that still finds time to wonder… how, why and whether the art world differentiates between trash and treasure.”
The New York Times

“Its author has a savvy, satirical eye, a terrific title and an insider’s knowledge of the New York art gallery world.”
—Janet Maslin, CBS Sunday Morning
