Publisher: E P Dutton; (May 1, 1990)
Hardcover: 403 pages
List Price: US$24.95
ISBN:
0525248463

Reviews
This book is a comparative dual biography of Isadora Duncan and an American Impressionist Painter Mary Cassatt. Isadora went to Egypt in 1910 at 33 years old, and Mary went to Egypt in 1911 at 56 years old.
Millicent says that Isadora Duncan and Mary Cassatt "never actually met, but if they had met, they would have looked at each other with total incomprehension: Cassatt, the self-contained, very private genius; Duncan, whose whole life was an oupouring of self, with no holds barred, trailing scandals in her wake. This is an amazing pair of life stories fused together with the utmost sympathy and intelligence."
