Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The world seems endlessly fascinated by artists who achieved a degree of attention within short lifetimes. Diane Arbus is a poster child for this genre. If you're an enthusiastic follower of Arbus's work I am sure this will be money well spent. If not, this book will likely be a dreary slog through the end game of a troubled person's life. It reads like research notes strung together to form a "chronology", with the suggestion that it reveals the black-box recordings leading to Arbus's suicide. But it doesn't. In fact the endnotes and biographical sketches (of the persons referenced) begin on p. 117 of this 176 page book. The final pages of the chronology end with the coroner's autopsy notes. Ugh. (Arbus's spleen weighed 110 g and was "unremarkable".)

So in the final analysis this work really has nothing whatsoever to do or say about Arbus's photography or her perspective on her work. Rather, it's a rather voyeuristic collection of anecdotes and correspondence surrounding a woman descending into a private mind-hell.

(Too bad it's not on Kindle. Get with it, Aperture!)

Format: Paperback
This is a very interesting book. Even if you have read other biographies, I am sure you will find some details you did not know about Arbus. It was a Christmas gift from my husband that I just received so I have only read excerpts as of now, but I have come across several tidbits I did not know about Diane. And I have read a few books about her. This book even includes the autopsy report in detail, which I found to be half creepy but half cool! Like I said, if u are a big fan of Arbus and want to know more about her than just her work, u will enjoy this book.
