There is much to love in this Lyric Stage Company production and I recommend it highly.
To mark the hundredth birthday of Charlotte Salomon, who is emerging as one of the 20th century’s great artists, come two fabulous volumes dedicated to her work.
This superb volume is much more than a group of essays; it is a tale with a trajectory fashioned by a writer who is determined to be achingly honest.

Focusing on these indomitable and sometimes troubling women, Fought has written an engaging book that is compelling, sometimes even fierce.
