    DescriptionThe supremely telegenic star of the original "Antiques Roadshow" dishes up his best tales of uncovering lost masterpieces and unmasking fakes. How can you tell a masterpiece from a piece of junk? Philip Mould has been so successful at discovering buried treasures that he's affectionately known as "the art detective." Now, at last, he has decided to let the eleven million fans of "Antiques Roadshow" in on his secrets. Each chapter revolves around a particular painting and the people who helped unmask its creator's identity-from an ingeniously forged Norman Rockwell (good enough to fool the Rockwell Museum) to a Winslow Homer found in a dump. Witty and compulsively readable, "The Art Detective" is memoir, art history, and brilliant storytelling all rolled into one.
