Editorial Reviews

Review

  • "Pleasantly spun tale of a museum with an unlikely history -- and collection ... A treat for fans of off-the-beaten track places as well as odd corners of art history." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
  •  "The Dancer, the Dreamers and the Queen of Romania is both the backstory of an  unusual art museum and a remarkable journey through some of the quirkiest personalities and politics of the early 20th century. And in Steve Wiegand's engaging tell, it's often just pure fun." -- Deborah Blum, Pulitzer Prize winner and best-selling author of The Poison Squad and The Poisoner's Handbook.
  •  "A wonderful job ... expert story telling." - Harriet Baskas, author and travel columnist
  •  "A cast of real-life characters, an eclectic collection, and a remote location could be the elements of a lively novel, but Wiegand tells the true if unlikely story of the Maryhill Art Museum in central Washington ... Wiegand's fascinating account will have great appeal for art lovers and museum-goers." Carolyn Mulac, BOOKLIST
  • "Deftly organized into fourteen informative and exceptionally well presented chapters, and featuring a section of both black/white and color illustrations, The Dancer, the Dreamers, and the Queen of Romania will have a very special appeal to art lovers, museum aficionados, history buffs and non-specialist general readers who enjoy an inherently fascinating true history that readers with all the eccentricity and drama of a deftly penned novel." Able Greenspan, Midwest Book Review
  • "Thoroughly enjoyable." --The History Chicks
