I stayed up late last night and finally finished As Above, So Below: A Novel of Peter Bruegel by Rudy Rucker.

I highly recommend this book. It is the fictional imagining of the life of Peter Bruegel. The author combined the few known facts about Bruegel's life with the history and the culture of the Netherlands in the 1500s to craft a realistic and intriguing novel. Each chapter has a Bruegel painting featured at the beginning and vividly describes the events in the artist's life and times that shaped the painting. My only criticism of the book is that I wish the reproductions of Bruegel's paintings were in color to match the vibrancy of the characters, events and culture depicted by Rudy Rucker.
