From the Publisher

In this short essay, author Nina Siegal explains how she became fascinated with Rembrandt's first great painting, The Anatomy Lesson. The painting not only inspired her to write the novel, it literally changed the course of her life. Lovers of literature and art should not miss this unique glimpse into that age-old question for writers: "Where do you get your ideas?"
