You know you're in for a beautiful biography when the text itself is as compelling as the subject matter. Having a nobel laureate like Octavio Paz write your autobiography is like having Vincent Van Gogh paint your house. The fact that Sor Juana's life also happens to be a thrilling blend of literary brilliance and political intrigue merely serves to give Paz a more complete arsenal with which to craft a great piece of non-fiction, whether or not you have the least bit of knowledge or interest in this field, you will not regret sampling the works of two great authors.
