This was an impulse buy at the Harvard Bookstore (oh Harvard Bookstore, I love you so-) and then I started it while on the bus to see a Kokoschka show at the Neue Gallery in NY (my new favorite museum - because it is a museum.) Perfect timing.

It is strange, though. This is a book that writes almost scientifically about a "passionate relationship." There are well-chosen quotations from letters between Kokoschka and Mahler, as well as fantastic and detailed analyses of Kokoschka's paintings exhib
I understand Kokoschka better now. Also understand how suffocated Alma would have been had she married him, but I got a very clear picture of that from her biography.
Really like the book's layout and printing adjacently K's work and other artists' work which influenced it.
