“Terrific! … Sweeps readers into 1950s New York avant-garde art world … Lanier’s For the Minds and Wills of Men is of the highest order.”
– Ann Weisgarber, The Promise
Jeff Lanier’s terrific For the Minds and Wills of Men sweeps readers into 1950s New York City where abstract art is thought to contain messages to help enemies destroy America. Lanier skillfully and effortlessly captures the era but his outstanding talents are his vivid descriptions of paintings and his keen understanding of the avant-garde art world. A fresh voice and exciting storyteller, Lanier’s “who-stole-it” mystery is of the highest order.
