Praise for Attribution

“Desperate for meaning and to fill the hole left by her younger brother's death, an art historian searches for a lost painting-and finds herself. Gorgeously written, and as rapturous as a Van Gogh, Moore's book is a winner."

—Caroline Leavitt, New York Times Bestselling Author of Pictures of You and With or Without You


“Moore’s passion for art, and her deep knowledge of the field, makes Attribution as beautifully rendered as the mysterious painting at the center of its gripping mystery. An engrossing debut about the importance and power of truth.”

—Stacey Swann, author of Good Morning America Book Club Pick Olympus, Texas


"Moore knocked me out with this high concept, arthouse puzzle. I was on my heels the whole time, in the best way, gobbling up the next clue as the book pushes toward an evocative crescendo. A fascinating debut."

Josh Mohr, Author of Model Citizen: A Memoir



Attribution is an intriguing art-historical fantasia. I loved reading it!”

—Edward J. Sullivan, Professor of the History of Art, New York University

"Moore delivers a riveting, flawlessly paced plot full of unforgettable characters, satisfying turns, and the complex workings of an art world the author knows intimately. . . . At stake are the reputations of leading historians, the legacy of one of the great master painters, and the brilliance of the women relegated to their shadows—until now."

—Angela Pneuman, award-winning author of Home Remedies and Lay It on My Heart
