Steve Martin's new book AN OBJECT OF BEAUTY comes out tomorrow, November 23. More reviews have come in...

"On the evidence of this book [Steve Martin] seems to be almost indecently multi-talented...The self-effacing narrator, Daniel Frank's account of Lacey's glamorous career has something of The Great Gatsby about it...an impressive and enjoyable book"
- Sunday Times

"Lacey is a wonderfully enigmatic heroine...Martin is illuminating and informative and has many a wise word...those with no prior interest in art should also reach the final page enlightened and captivated"
- Daily Express

"Substantial and profound…Martin casts the same sharp eye over Lacey's manipulation of her lovers as over her manipulation of the market. This is a rich and illuminating novel."
- Daily Mail

"Glistening with glamour, intrigue, ambition and betrayal, Steve Martin's novel is intoxicating."
- Easy Living

"A look behind the scenes of the New York art world. Charting the rise of glamorous Lacey Yeager it lifts the curtain on what drives collectors... a wry perceptive and properly told story from an insider and a fan."
- Elle
