Reviews

[A] lively, deliciously gossipy dual biography.--Kate Tuttle
[With] hypnotic power.... Wieland uses these two virtuosos' lives to generate piercing insights about ambition, ego, creativity and the life-changing, world-altering repercussions of a momentous choice.--Michael Sragow
Illuminating.... Via a fluent, often witty translation by Shelley Frisch, Wieland draws the portrait of women who were ambitious to a degree stunning in their day. Moreover, by tracking their divergent careers together, she is able subtly to suggest some answers to a question that hangs over every mid-century German artist: what kind of responses were available to the Nazi apocalypse?--Farran Smith Nehme
