Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A chronicle of a high-born, spirited woman's fight for creative expression and her own sanity at the dawn of modern art. (July)
Boston Globe
“Engrossing, beautifully written . . . but also touching in its candor about the flawed character of a beloved relation.”
New York Times Book Review
“Haunting and . . . complex . . . part biography, part memoir, of the woman who happened to be [Honor Moore’s] grandmother.”
The Nation
“Ambitious and searching . . . as rich in casually telling detail as only an authentic family album could be.”
New York Review of Books
“It is a virtue of this autobiographical biography that it succeeds in evoking the unfathomable nature of a personality.”
