“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.” ~ Interview


"Lisle's view of Nevelson's often ruthless behavior is both compassionate and clear-eyed...[she] has constructed a colorful, rich study of Nevelson's creative evolution...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


"Lisle presents a figure whose eroticism seems far richer, far more complex than mere sexual appeal...[seeing] both the pain and the joy surrounding Nevelson's eccentric behavior...The 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.” ~ Woman's Art Journal
