    Finally finished this monster just as 2011 is ending It was really way than I needed to know about Mary McCarthy but I'm glad I read it It's good to read about a successful woman who was renowned for her sharp edges

    A fantastic book offering a chorus of opinions and views by McCarthy's friends family and colleagues former classmates etc Couldn't ask for a fuller portrait of the woman and her work Her fascinating multi faceted personality amplified by Kiernan's methodological choice

    couldn't finish the book It was just too filled with details too confusing in the presentation and I didn't get that interested in the character I guess you have to be a real Mary McCarthy fan to get through the book
