Praise

“Secrest offers vividly detailed accounts of Parisian bohemia. . .She takes us on a fascinating, up-to-the-present tour of the artist’s posthumous history. . . particularly gripping in her description of the end of his life. . . Secrest’s book both preserves and alters [Modigliani’s] legend. Modigliani’s story is by far the most interesting thing about him. It is certainly the most complex thing, and Secrest lets the complexity unfold in complicated ways, probing it with a historian’s eye, dramatizing it with an advocate’s passion.”
Holland Cotter, The New York Times Book Review

“[Secrest is an] adept biographer. . . a masterly account.”
Peter Schjeldahl, The New Yorker
 
“An engaging writer and highly accomplished biographer…the man [Secrest] portrays is far more complicated and interesting than his popular image.”
Suzanne Muchnic, Los Angeles Times

“With a keen nose for canards and unprecedented access to primary materials, exemplary biographer Secrest revisits the life and achievement of artist Modigliani. . . Every aspect of Modigliani’s life takes on new meaning, including his iconic portraits. . . Astute and gripping.”
Donna Seaman, Booklist (starred)
