Praise for A Complicated Marriage
"Janice Van Horne’s new memoir reveals a fresh perspective that sheds light on the interior life of Clement Greenberg, not only as the esteemed art critic but as a husband, lover, and off and on companion of nearly 40 years." East Hampton Star
Praise for The Harold Letters
Janice Van Horne has created a little treasure from these letters . . . original in every way.” Helen Frankenthaler, Partisan Review
The Harold Letters distinguishes itself from other, more fallacious personal histories; his honesty unabashedly reveals the kind of unspeakable, grandiose desires that we all have for ourselves.” The New York Times Book Review
In addition to chronicling Greenberg’s zigzag journey to his true vocation, this fascinating volume also offers graphic snapshots of his busy life, vivid evocations of the urban American landscape, and what may be one of the best, most frank depictions of what it was like to be a struggling Jewish intellectual in the U.S. during the Great Depression.” Raphael Rubinstein, Art in America
