Isn’t Laura important at this point since she is you know actually advancing the needed knowledge?3 BTW why is it Francesca and Laura when all that men are referred to by their last names?4 Oh and how come there are no drippi

The book follows several people the octagenerian pre eminent Caravvaggio scholar in the world an obscure italian art restorer living in the artistic hinterland of Ireland and a Roman graduate student in art history Their lives eventually intertwine but are separate for most of the narrative The story really gets going with
