“An incendiary cocktail of literary ambition, fame, sexual adventure and addiction.”

“Perfectly outstanding…Milford’s biography takes the whole of Millay’s heaving, grieving, ecstatic life into account in a way that is almost loving, always respectful, even when blunt truth and candor are necessary….Masterful.”
—Kaye Gibbons, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Original and spellbinding.”
—Lorrie Moore, The New York Review of Books

Savage Beauty is irresistible.”
—Amanda Foreman

“One seldom sees this level of brilliant, hands-on research in contemporary literary biography. The result is this compelling, keenly perceptive life of Edna St. Vincent Millay—with its own ‘savage beauty.’”
—Toni Morrison

“Riveting and revealing…Savage Beauty sweeps before it all previous biographies of Millay, which by contrast seem uninformed and too discreet.”
—J. D. McClatchy, The New York Times Book Review
