Perfectly outstanding...Milford's biography takes the whole of Millay's heaving ,grieving,estactic life into account in a way that is almostloving, always respectful, even when blunt truth and candor are necessary

Poets were the "rock stars" of Vincent Millay's era- and she was the Elvis, The Beatles, the Janis Joplin of her time. This is an extremely well written and well researched biography. It is the best biography (tied with "Seabiscuit")I have ever read as well as one of the best books of any genre I have ever read.

No, I will not post my copy. I want it to be right here when I'm moved to read it again.

Detailed biography of the poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay, who emerges as a brilliant but willful and often self-centered child. The portrait of her last years, ravaged by alcoholism and morphine abuse, is nevertheless heartbreaking.

I because aware of this book because it was reviewed on the Diane Rehm show on NPR. The account of Millay's life is extraordinary. It opens the door to a life that was complex and astounding, brash and tragic.
