FAKE LIKE ME by Barbara Bourland - Starred Review from Kirkus

Kirkus | April 9, 2019

“Bourland’s (I’ll Eat When I’m Dead, 2017) painstaking research on the practical and emotional aspects of making art is on vivid display. Readers eager for a glimpse into the New York art scene will be enthralled, but despite the glitz and glamour, it’s frequently a dehumanizing place to be, especially for women. After all, as the gallerist says: ‘Female painters are the bargain of the century.’

A haunting, dizzying meditation on identity and the blurred lines between life and art.”
