As Above, So Below: A Novel of Peter Bruegel (read 7/20/12) Recommended

What an absolutely delightful, engaging historical fiction novel about the 16th Century Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Much of the story is surmise on Rucker’s part little but the rough outlines of Bruegel the Elder’s life and paintings remains, but Rucker does a credible job bringing the man and his world alive.
