I meant to read this 12 years ago when it came out, but somehow I just kept putting it off. Anyway, I saw it yesterday in the library and picked it up.It details the cruelty that we all know about Picasso, but she never really gets to that point of transcendence. She never tells us anything except for gossip. It think this was an important book for her to write, but I could have skipped it myself. Who would like this? People who are into high-brow celebrity gossip. I'm just glad I have a Lawrence Block novel next on my shelf.
