About the Author

In recent years Janice Van Horne edited two books assembled from Clement Greenberg's archive at the Getty Research Library; The Harold Letters and Homemade Esthetics, designated a New York Times book of the year. She lives in New York City, in the same apartment she and Clem moved into in 1960.


Praise for A Complicated Marriage

Janice Van Horne's new memoir reveals a fresh perspective that sheds light on the interior life of Clement Greenberg, not only as the esteemed art critic but as a husband, lover, and off and on companion of nearly 40 years. --East Hampton Star

Praise for The Harold Letters

Janice Van Horne has created a little treasure from these letters . . . original in every way. --Helen Frankenthaler, Partisan Review

The Harold Letters distinguishes itself from other, more fallacious personal histories; his honesty unabashedly reveals the kind of unspeakable, grandiose desires that we all have for ourselves. --The New York Times Book Review

In addition to chronicling Greenberg's zigzag journey to his true vocation, this fascinating volume also offers graphic snapshots of his busy life, vivid evocations of the urban American landscape, and what may be one of the best, most frank depictions of what it was like to be a struggling Jewish intellectual in the U.S. during the Great Depression. --Raphael Rubinstein, Art in America
