Reviews of An Object of Beauty

"Steve Martin... on the evidence of this book seems to be almost indecently multi-talented... Martin cunningly mixes the work of real artists with those of his own invention... An Object of Beauty is an impressive and enjoyable book. The real protagonists of the novel are Art and Money - and the love affair between them" -- Sunday Times

"The expertise of Martin is dazzlingly in evidence here... it is thoroughly delightful, evoking a vanished gilded age" -- New York Times

"Substantial and profound... This is a rich and illuminating novel that neither relies on nor suffers from its author's celebrity status" -- Daily Mail

Steve Martin will be performing at The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts in Vancouver, Canada on July 26. The Vancouver Sun writes about the upcoming show.
