Art and Madness: A Memoir of Lust Without Reason

Art and Madness: A Memoir of Lust Without Reason - Anne Roiphe Absolutely gorgeous writing. It's hard to believe that anyone who can write this beautifully could ever feel overshadowed by other writers (male or female), but there you have it. A truly worthwhile read. Imagine if Betty Draper took up with Jack Kerouac and you've kind of got the picture.
