A "New York Times Book Review" Editors' Choice
Rosamond Bernier has known many (one is tempted to say all) of the greatest artists and composers of the twentieth century. In "Some of My Lives"," " she has made a kind of literary scrapbook from an extraordinary array of writings, ranging from scholarly articles for American publications to her many contributions to the art journal "L' IL"," " which she cofounded in 1955.
Through the stories of her encounters with Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Leonard Bernstein, Max Ernst, Aaron Copland, Malcolm Lowry, and Karl Lagerfeld, we come to understand the sheer richness of Bernier's experiences and memories. Pithy, hilarious, and wise, "Some of My Lives" is a multifaceted self-portrait of a life informed and surrounded by the arts.
