This is Chevalier's new book about the London of William Blake. It has its interesting moments, but I didn't like it as well as "Girl with a Pearl Earring"--the characters aren't quite as dynamic s those in her first novel. Nevertheless, I learned a lot about the period of time and the geography of London. I just wished for more Blake and less of the villains in the circus@
