Reviews

"For a biographer, looking into one's own life can be a risky enterprise. For a biographer as accomplished as Hayden Herrera, it has turned out to be a risk worth taking. Her beautiful, entitled, and rather heedless parents may have failed at making households (they had ten marriages between them), but in the pages of Upper Bohemia the author has found her way home. Her book is honest, revealing, and deeply felt."

-- Daniel Okrent, author of The Guarded Gate
