Abstract:

"In his brilliant follow-up to In Sunlight or In Shadow, Lawrence Block has gathered together the best talent from popular fiction to produce an anthology as inventive as it is alluring, including Joyce Carol Oates, Lee Child, Michael Connelly, David Morrell, and Jeffery Deaver."--

Any number of artists have produced evocative work, paintings that could trigger a literary response. For this collection, each author was invited to select a painting-- from the cave drawings at Lascaux to a contemporary abstract canvas on which the paint has barely dried-- and write a story. Each story is accompanied in color by the work of art that inspired it.
