An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin
An Object of Beauty tells the story of Lacey Yeager, a beautiful and ambitious young woman. Her story is narrated by Daniel Franks, a journalist and friend to Lacey. He's carried a torch for her since their brief fling in college. Lacey, however, is uninterested in romance. In her world, sex is a means to further her career in the art world. She moves from working in the basement in Sotheby's to being a dealer in high-end art. She uses her talent and her beauty to move far from her humble beginnings, living her life on the edge of being humbled again. Steve Martin's novel has received mostly positive reviews with BookPage saying, "Martin infuses his novel with the gusto and ken of a true art aficionado, yet the story is accessible and enjoyable regardless of the reader's own artistic background. Even if you don't know your Monet from your Manet, much of what Martin writes-like the evanescent American dream-is universal in its appeal."
