Seems that I recall a thread once about this book, written by Vreeland, but I can't remember what the opinions were about it. I thought that I would read it for the challenge.If any of you have read it, can you tell me if it's worth my time?

I haven't read Girl in Hyacinth Blue but I just finished a book of short stories by Susan Vreeland, Life Studies.  All the stories were art-related, and most of them incorporated actual artists, in what could have been moments from their lives.  Very good.
