Reviews

"Steinke shows palpable admiration and respect for her proto-feminist protagonist. This is an intelligent, spirited work that stimulates interest in the baroness's work and times." -- Publishers Weekly

"The baroness's antics make the Andy Warhol crowd seem tame by comparison." -- Playboy

"Steinke is a consummate prose stylist. She has a poet's ear for words...." -- BookForum

"A fascinating read." -- W Magazine

"Steinke's graceful prose adds intimate texture to a woman so cutting-edge that Duchamp called her 'the future.'" -- Entertainment Weekly

"Steinke's book reminds us why Elsa's frenetic, avant-garde world is worth remembering." -- Time Out New York

"Steinke has drawn a fully realized character whose Dadaist impulses, even though the filter of time and fiction, still startle." -- Chicago Tribune
