Fredsky | 5 comments This novel tells of a young female sculptor making a full-scale replica of an ancient human from a set of footprints for a museum. The creation of this "Lucy" figure is described in wonderful detail, even to the color of the tubes she uses for arteries and so on. While she works on it she is undergoing a divorce or separation from her husband/lover. She kind of flips out, understandable under the detailed circumstances. I got this book from the library and no one else has ever heard of it. It's very good, especially for people who sculpt.

Cathy (lltoo) | 143 comments This sounds like it might be the book you're looking for: The Reconstruction by Claudia Casper.


Fredsky | 5 comments This is exactly the book I sought. Now I'll have to read it all over again and maybe even follow along during the reconstruction (using the designated colored wire, of course)! Thank you.
