"A lusty romance, a murder mystery and a bit of Americana, all rolled into one big, fat historical romp . . . Lepore and Kamensky have re-created a fascinating world and brought history hotly alive." "San Francisco Chronicle
""An erudite and entertaining re-creation of colonial America on the brink of the Revolution." "New York Times Book Review"
"Both frisky and learned . . . a treat." "Washington Post"
"A rip-roaring yarn, a real romp . . . It's fantastic the romance novel of your dreams." "Newsday
"A droll, edifying novel . . . Not since John Barth . . . has anyone rendered colonial America in such exquisite satirical strokes. Blindspot succeeds as raw entertainment; better, it soars as cunning academic revisionism." "Chicago Tribune
"A very smart book . . . [Blindspot] captures Colonial America's wit and vulgarity, its sensibility, sensuality and snobbery." "San Diego Union-Tribune"" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
