Blindspot: A Novel by Two Acclaimed Historians, Jane Kamensky and Jill Lepore, Required Reading, at Oregon State University
Blindspot: A Novel, written by two acclaimed historians, Jane Kamensky and Jill Lepore, is a novel of painting, passion, and politics in the age of the American Revolution. Written with wit and exuberance by two longtime friends, the novel is at once fiction and history, mystery and love story, tragedy and farce. Set in the boisterous, rebellious Boston of 1764, Blindspot is filled with the bawdy, satirical sensibility of the eighteenth century.
Oregon State University’s History Dept will be using for its course on “The Historian’s Craft” this Fall.
Jane Kamensky is a professor of American history and chair of the History Department at Brandeis University.
Jill Lepore is the David Woods Kemper ’41 Professor of American History at Harvard University, where she is the chair of the History and Literature Program.
