As readers of her How to Hepburn and The Gospel According to Coco Chanel know, Karen Karbo does not write traditional biographies. In fact, her reassessments are, as the subtitle of this book notes, lessons on the art of living. Thus, in covering the long (1887-1986) life of painter Georgia O'Keeffe, she teaches us more about how the Wisconsin-born artist found her path and defined her style than about how she mixed her paints or arranged her itineraries. How Georgia Became O'Keeffe describes how this passionately independent woman was able to maintain a successful relationship with Alfred Stieglitz, a masterful photographer with a strong personality. Unconventional both as a biography and a self-help tome; equally useful as both.
