This book has been among my most anticipated reads and the longer I waited to get my hands on it the higher my expectations soared. Normally I try to real in these high hopes but I just couldn’t with this book; I was giddy with delight when it finally arrived and started reading it as soon as I could.
Most times when my expectations are as high as they were for this read I am disappointed, dismayed and sad but Painting the Invisible Man was the exception to this rule!
I did think it would go into more of the nitty gritty of getting the authors hands covered in paint, often looking at my own fingernails to see them clean and wonder if the uncovering mafia ties within her family. Although this didn’t happen the story was still completely satisfying and liberating.
Rita Schiano tells her story loosely through another writer and wonderfully portrays the tale of a young woman coming to terms with who she is despite who she may have become. Schiano beautifully mixes present day with years ago with many years ago while keeping the story easy to understand and follow.
What would you do if you discovered recent articles about your long deceased father by accident? Rita took on the challenge and won!
I highly recommend reading this book and you can find more information and other reviews on Painting The Invisible Man‘s website.
When you read it please let me know what you think.
Thanks for reading,
