CKCU’s Susan Johnston sits down with Mark Frutkin, the Trillium Book Award-wining author of Fabrizio's Return about his latest historical novel, The Artist and the Assassin . 

 

The play of light and shadow defines Mark Frutkin's vibrant narrative based on the life of the seventeenth-century painter known as Caravaggio, whose revolutionary use of the chiaroscuro technique fuelled his dazzling success while his demons led him down the path of exile and, ultimately, assassination. 

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
