Read in May, 2008 , read count: Once

Victor Seroff is obnoxious, homophobic, and has not idea what he's talking about. Clearly. Why this little known pianist has any authority in writing a 'tell-all' biography of Isadora Duncan was never quite clear to me, but his unvarying habit of deriding all other figures in Duncan's life as terrible influences on her in contrast to himself decreased any credence he might have. His tendency to talk about 'parasitic lesbians' and other evil homosexuals preying on innocent Isadora's good nature made me want to throw the book at the wall. Mercedes d'Acosta, anyone?
