“The prize comes at last. Louise Nevelson: A Passionate Life just won’t be put down. This biography of a monstre sacre is a tale of hard-tacks heroism and heedless swipes at those who dared to love her.”
[It]"is a levelheaded biography. It is neither hagiographic nor snide. It is not sensational, even though the life recorded here had its tabloid moments."
Michael Brenson, The New York Times Book Review
“Lisle’s view of Nevelson’s often ruthless behavior is both compassionate and clear-eyed...Lisle brings to especially clear light Nevelson’s personal, if chilly, flair [giving] A Passionate Life, its gritty richness.”
Sarah Wright, The Boston Sunday Herald
“The book...is impressive in its thoroughness, which nonetheless results in ‘good reading’ by virtue of its interweaving of personal and professional information, [and] its eclectic introduction of psychological analysis.”
