B.A. Shapiro, author of The Art Forger, has new book, Metropolis

With her novels “The Collector’s Apprentice,” “The Muralist” and “The Art Forger,” BA Shapiro attracted readers who reveled in literary thrillers set in the world of art.

For her new novel, Shapiro pivoted to a vastly different world—storage units.

“Metropolis,” which will be released on Tuesday, involves a death (suicide or murder?) in a cavernous Boston storage unit and a cast of characters of all types and ages. Some of them, escaping past or present demons, live in their units in the storage warehouse. All of them merge in the novel’s complicated plot.

Shapiro, 70, has a doctorate in sociology and has worked as a systems analyst and statistician as well as a professor of sociology and creative writing. Born in Connecticut, she lives in Boston and in Naples, Florida, and is a mother and a grandmother.
