Description

In bohemian Montparnasse of the 1920s, Kiki escaped poverty to become one of the most charismatic figures of the avant-garde years between the wars. Partner to Man Ray, and one of the first emancipated women of the 20th century, Kiki made her mark with her freedom of style, word, and thought that could be learned from only one school—the school of life.

Praise for Kiki de Montparnasse:

“An excellent companion to readers of Anaïs Nin, Simone de Beauvoir, and other of Kiki’s less flamboyant contemporaries.” —Booklist
