Very easy to read and packed with interesting art gossip of the time, Peggy really makes it work and brings to life many of the artists of her time.
This is a book you do not want to finish, you constantly wish that as you progress in your reading as the book will unfold in more pages.
This story really brings Penny Guggenheim to live. i read it in Venice with my 16 year old son. After that he looked at modern art with new eyes.Published 20 days ago by Emile Manefeldt

She was unusual to say the least.
For a book who's title includes the word confessions it seems a bit reserved. It reads more like a chronology than an emotional disclosure. Nevertheless enjoyable.Published 7 months ago by hester
