Teaser Tuesdays: Provenance

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Provenance: How a Con Man and a Forger Rewrote the History of Modern Art by Laney Salisbury and Aly Sujo p. 45

"The idea of concocting the intricate history of a work of art from whole cloth was no great leap for Drewe, who had been inventing himself since he was a child. By the time he was a nervous thirteen-year-old thread of a boy in short trousers and cap, he had mastered the art of dissembling."

One thing I really liked in this book was the authors didn't just talk about the forgeries, but also analyzed the character of the man behind them to try to figure out why he would do this.

Sounds like an interesting book. I've been reading some nonfiction lately and have been surprised at how much I've enjoyed it.
My Teaser is from SPARE CHANGE.
