"In this elegiac and brutally honest debut work, a young artist, Rain Morton, attempts to make her mark in Manhattan's art world despite both the advantages and the weight of influence around her: her art critic husband, her art dealer step-mother and her father, a renowned author. But just as Rain begins to make her own professional ascent, a string of setbacks and betrayals send her down a path of self-discovery--both personal and as a painter. On the way, she disentangles her intricate family history. At the fringes of Rain's tumult is the mysterious Colorman, James Morrow of Highland Morrow paint manufactory, whose ancient and arcane paint-making techniques--and hermetic existence--help Rain elucidate her increasingly confused world. Morrow slowly becomes an imprtant ballast to her struggles."

"As art and life blur together in a narrative as gripping as it is poignant, The Colorman emerges as a deeply moving and evocative exploration of love and loss, creativity and identity. Erika Wood has written a striking novel."
--Donald McRae, The Guardian

"The Colorman is a sumptuous ode to color, woven through an ardent art scene romp."
--Marilynn Gelfman Karp, author of In Flagrante Collecto

"The Colorman plunges you into a world of deep colors, rich emotions, and profound insights. Like the paints created by the title charactr, Erika Wood's debut novel is a distinctive work of alchemy--a product at once mysteriouis and transformative."
--Stephen Ives, documentary film director The West, Seabuiscuit, New Orleans
