“In Gods of Water and Air, Rachel Dacus turns a painterly eye onto both the nooks
and crannies of our world — ‘hints of rose madder in the cerulean,’ a palm tree’s
‘rigid, rattling arguments’ — and ‘the blue immensity’ that holds us all.
— Molly Fisk, author of Blow-Drying a Chicken.

“Dacus’ book will invite you to journey with her through adventures
in art museums, pie baking, and eagle-spotting.”
– Jeannine Hall Gailey, author of She Returns to the Floating World.

THE RENAISSANCE CLUB
A work-in-progress.

Rachel Dacus’ novel The Renaissance Club pairs young art historian May Gold with her idol, the long-dead sculptor Gianlorenzo Bernini, while May is touring northern Italy. With the help of tour guide George St. James and his time-bending gold pen, she takes brief excursions in time to first advise the volatile genius, then model for him, and ultimately take him as a lover. Then she must choose between writing about her dreams and changing centuries to live them. The complete manuscript is available for review by agents and publishers.
