Shedding Light on CLARA AND MR. TIFFANY

The Washington Post, says the Susan Vreeland’s new novel, Clara and Mr. Tiffany,

… brims with fascinating information about Tiffany’s glassmaking and about New York as its gilded age gives way to a more progressive era. Clara stands at the story’s center as a woman ahead of her time, a female artist who mentors others and demands equality.

Clara Driscoll was the unwitting “good woman” behind the “great man,” Louis C. Tiffany. She was the one who invented to process for making the famous Tiffany lamps. Her contribution was only recently recognized, serving as the inspiration for this book.

People magazine gives the book 4 of a possible 4 stars in the current issue and Vreeland was interviewed on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday.
