Zelda : a biography by Nancy Milford ( Book )
74 editions published between 1962 and 2001 in 10 languages and held by 3,656 libraries worldwide
Zelda Sayre began as a Southern beauty, became an international wonder, and died by fire in a madhouse. Witty, indulged, and capricious, Zelda thoroughly enjoyed exercising the prerogatives of a Southern belle. When she married F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1920, her lifestyle seemed the natural extension of her Montgomery, Alabama upbringing. She and Scott were the epitome of the Jazz Age, and they rode the crest of the era to its collapse--and their own. From years of exhaustive research, Nancy Milford brings alive the tormented, elusive personality of Zelda and clarifies as never before her relationship with Scott Fitzgerald. Zelda traces the inner disintegration of a gifted, despairing woman, torn by the clash between her husband's career and her own talent.
Savage beauty : the life of Edna St. Vincent Millay by Nancy Milford ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 2,782 libraries worldwide
"If F. Scott Fitzgerald was the hero of the Jazz Age, Edna St. Vincent Millay, as audacious in her love affairs as she was in her art, was its heroine. She embodied, in her reckless fancy, the spirit of the New Woman, and gave America its voice." "The first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, Millay was dazzling in the performance of her self. Her voice was an instrument of seduction, and her impact on crowds, and on men, was legendary. Young women styled themselves in her image - fairylike, taunting, free. Yet beneath her studied act, all was not well." "Nancy Milford was given exclusive access to Millay's papers, and what she found was an unimaginable treasure. Hundreds of letters flew back and forth between the three sisters and their mother - and Millay kept the most intimate diary, one whose ruthless honesty brings to mind the journals of Sylvia Plath."--Jacket.

Christopher Wilmarth : light and gravity by Steven Henry Madoff ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 368 libraries worldwide
"Christopher Wilmarth delighted the world with light-filled sculptures of glass and steel that were poetic in their moods and rich in their modernist heritage. But in 1987, at the peak of his career, a long struggle with depression ended tragically for Wilmarth. The internationally acclaimed artist committed suicide at age forty-four, and his work largely fell from the public view." "Now, Wilmarth's legacy is recaptured in this illustrated book by art critic, historian, and poet Steven Henry Madoff. The first in-depth look at Wilmarth's extraordinary life as an artist, the book explores both the light and the darkness that underlie his work. Madoff offers a critical overview of the artist's career, examining the sculptor's response not only to historical masters such as Cezanne, Brancusi, Matisse, and Giacometti, but also to the art world of his times - particularly the dominant influence of Minimalism. Using the newly created Wilmarth archive at Harvard University's Fogg Art Museum, Madoff anchors this moving interpretation with the sculptor's own writings unearthed from journals, student notebooks, artist sketchbooks, and letters." "Madoff draws as well from interviews, articles, and poems that Wilmarth published in his lifetime, along with the body of criticism covering Wilmarth's development over the years."--BOOK JACKET.
