Description


“A striking portrait of a woman artist’s struggle for life.” —Arthur Miller


Margarett Sargent was an icon of avant-garde art in the 1920s. In an evocative weave of biography and memoir, her granddaughter unearths for the first time the life of a spirited and gifted woman committed at all costs to self-expression.

Praise For…


Engrossing, beautifully written . . . but also touching in its candor about the flawed character of a beloved relation.

It is a virtue of this autobiographical biography that it succeeds in evoking the unfathomable nature of a personality.

Haunting and . . . complex . . . part biography, part memoir, of the woman who happened to be [Honor Moore’s] grandmother.

Ambitious and searching . . . as rich in casually telling detail as only an authentic family album could be.
