I have a confession to make, I am not doing a review on this book today. Why, you ask…well, I started reading it with the intention of whizzing right through it…not the case. It is an extremely well written, in-depth study of a very complex woman, Isadora Duncan. It will take more than a day or even two to really absorb its content. If you want to read along with me, you can do that otherwise give me a bit of a break to really get into it and I will give you my opinion in a week or so.
I might let you know that I am not a fan of modern dance, not at all. It just isn’t my thing, but learning about such an independent woman during the early 20th Century is a true education. I am finding so much of what I am reading lately talks about independent women and how they fought to be recognized. It makes fascinating reading. I am, most certainly, well aware of the restrictions on women of that time, but am finding more and more information and therefore, insight into their journeys. Perhaps a bit easier when in the Arts, but was it really!!?? As you already know, I adore novels written about “real people” using fact and incorporating them into to fiction…one can only speculate which is which.
Thank you for baring with me this week on my book post!
