This biography of Sara and Gerald Murphy was written with the contributions of Honoria, their only surviving child. It complements another, more recent, biography as it includes details from Honoria's childhood. Sara and Gerald were at the center of the Paris intellectual scene in the 1920s and early 1930s. They were friends with every serious artist and writer and Gerald has recently been acknowledged as a serious painter in his own right. Both of Honoria's brothers died as teenagers, a terrible blow to her parents. They continued on with life and Honoria was able to present them with grandchildren. This is a lovely book and tells a wondrous tale of an artistic life that we will never know. She had a magical childhood as the children were always at the center of their parents' lives.

Honoria Donnelly was the Murphy's only surviving child, and she tells the tragic story of their lives with sensitivity and astonishing insight. Well-written and very objective, considering she was part of the tale.

I have always been fascinated with this era and had read about the Murpheys and expat life. so I was excited to locate the book. But I was very disappointed. It was hard to read and I am a voracious reader. The photos were better than the text.

This book cronicles the lives of Sara and Gerald Murphy through their daughter, Honoria. I found their lives fascinating, and coming from Honoria felt the most accuracy of all of the books I have read on their lives. There are some nice pictures which help by putting a face to the characters in the biography. If you are not familiar with the Murphy's, they are expats from the early 1920's who became friends with the early artists and writers of that era. This book also puts some insight into the lives of Hemmingway, Fitzgerald, dos Passos and the many friends the Murphy's helped through the years. A great read, especially if you are interested in the early 1900s.
