‘I Always Loved You’ – Seattle author Robin Oliveira’s novel of the French Impressionists

"I Always Loved You," Robin Oliveira's new novel

“I Always Loved You,” Robin Oliveira’s new novel

It’s hard to imagine a more creative, idiosyncratic and talented group of humans than the French Impressionists. Seattle-area novelist Robin Oliveira thought so too, and focused her new novel “I Always Loved You” on this tempestuous group. She focuses on two painters, the American Mary Cassatt and the French artist Edward Degas, who had a relationship still speculated about today (Oliveira has her own interpretation, but you’ll have to read the book for that.

She appears tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors interview program on state public affairs network TVW (in Seattle, Comcast channel 23). It airs at 7 and 10 p.m. Host Terry Tazioli interviews Oliveira, and afterwards, Terry and I (the co-host) discuss more books about  Americans who have journeyed to Paris in search of learning, artistic freedom and the perfect little side street cafe (ok, I made that part up).

Can’t wait? You can watch it here:
