This book was beyond poorly written, but I was compelled to finish it in like 2 days because the subject is so fascinating! The Baroness Elsa Von Fragtag-Loringhoven wore bras made of soup cans and was friends with Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray. She was a sexual libertine, a proto-punk, and a gutter poet. There is another book about her called "Baroness Elsa" which seems much better, so it will soon be on the to-read list.
