Photo Quiz (the Brookner Edition)

Based on these two photos, can you tell which novel I am going to review tomorrow? Since you were all so good at my last photo contest. I give no hints this time. In fact, in order to actually win, you not only have to get the book title right but you have to tell me the name of the artist who created the fresco in the second photo. The winner gets to order their paperback of choice from The Book Depository.

The big day is right around the corner and the reviews are piling up over at IABD, most recently from Luvvie's Musings. So far we have 14 reviews available. And we can't wait to add yours to the official IABD review archive.


  1. Ha! I figured it out:
    First photo: Providence, R. I.
    Second photo: Divine Providence by Pietro Berrettini da Cortona

    And I did have to do a Google search, I didn't know it off the top of my head. I wish I knew that much about art!

    I look forward to your review. I'm working on Incidents in the Rue Laugier, should finish it in the next day or so.

  2. Damn she beat me too it...but yes that's clearly my home city of Providence, so I'm guessing you're reviewing the Anita Brookner of the same title, 'Providence?' No googling!

  3. Although you both seem to come by it honestly, a friend pointed out to me that the tags on the photos also gave a way the answer. Not only was Karen first with the answer but she found the Cortona reference. I think I am really going to have to make the next one difficult. Karen if you are in the US (I forget at present) you can pick a paperback from Barnes and Noble or The Book Depository and let me know what it is with your address. If not in the US choose from The Book Depository.
