What a great read, very entertaining

I enjoyed this fictional take on how Picasso might have been, given his track record with women. With the current atmosphere of "Times up" and anti-sexual harrasment movement, Picasso would be in a real pickle. I loved the author's management of time. As I first began it was very French formulaic and thought I would be dissapointed, it went on a positive crescendo. Not a literary masterpiece at all, but a well developed fictional novel. An entertaining read, a page turner towards the end.
