Reviews
"An incendiary cocktail of literary ambition, fame, sexual adventure and addiction."
--Newsweek

"Perfectly outstanding...Milford's biography takes the whole of Millay's heaving, grieving, ecstatic life into account in a way that is almost loving, always respectful, even when blunt truth and candor are necessary....Masterful."
--Kaye Gibbons, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Original and spellbinding."
--Lorrie Moore, The New York Review of Books

"Savage Beauty is irresistible."
--Amanda Foreman

"One seldom sees this level of brilliant, hands-on research in contemporary literary biography. The result is this compelling, keenly perceptive life of Edna St. Vincent Millay--with its own 'savage beauty.'"
--Toni Morrison

"Riveting and revealing...Savage Beauty sweeps before it all previous biographies of Millay, which by contrast seem uninformed and too discreet."
--J. D. McClatchy, The New York Times Book Review
