The debut novel of John Fiske, The Library Book is a work of historical fiction set in New York's Gilded Age. The protagonist, an architect, strives to discover the relationship between art and artist--which controls which? As he observes his partner during the design and construction of The New York Public Library, he notes the transformations, frustrations, and joyful rewards of the artist's connection with his work. A fine period piece, exquisitely capturing a philosophical quandary and transformation as surely as it brings alive the shining yet corruption-ridden American culture of yesteryear.
