    1. I was captivated by her self portrait in the recent Queer Britain exhibition at the Tate and beetled straight to the shop hoping for a biography and there was one! Yay! Another book book (not e-book) for Chloe to read this a new trend?It's a big old book for a life wheret masses happened. More than anything that's happened in MY life, for sure, but still. It's great that it has pictures (of pictures) but they're in black and whitefeels very diminishing. The book certainly timelines her life and [...]


    2. I was invited by Netgalley to review this book. To say the truth I had no idea who this person was and I had my doubts I would enjoy the biography, they are not my usual cup of tea.Yet it was a book I read with dedication. A book that not only described to me, as does, Gluck’s lifetime, but what was more important it described the emotions that motivated Gluck’s life. Why she came to call herself so? Why did she paint that painting? Why did she move in that house? Why the choice of that col [...]


    3. This book was interesting but nothing special. I am not sure if it was the author or Gluck herself but I just didn't think the life of the butch lesbian gender bending painter Gluck was very exciting. I understand she was a pioneer in the wearing of men's attire at a time when it was controversial to do so. I also get that she was somewhat of a 20s and 30s high society darling and art talent but I just kept wanting her to be more interesting and she wasn't. Neither was the lackluster writing in [...]


    4. An insight into the 1920's and 30's life of a lesbian painter and her loves. Androgynous and single minded her work was her passion as were her two main loves. She could be tough to deal with but then, isn't that a prerequisite of creating your art?




    5. She was a rebel. She was difficult. She had a torrid personal life that shocked her family. But she was an extraordinary woman and an undervalued artist.


    6. Fascinating artist she might be someone I would add to the dinner party of dead famous people I would like to share a meal with.
