This is probably the best non-fiction I've read all year (I left my verdict till the very last day of 2018). in a year where a number of excellent works have come out this one stands out for its rigour, heart and accessibility. Read it, not just alone but with others and find ways to collectively build social, environmental and emotional connections.

excellent though imperfect.

superb book written with restraint, candour and heart. The author's narration is wonderful, an honour to have her read her work.

I agree- it's very good!

The idea and enigmatic power of Abramovic is a great basis for a book. The performance art piece, 'The Artist is Present' was beautifully renders by Rose, the surrounding chattels and padding I thought dulled the concept. The characters were thin, preening and self absorbed asides from Jane Miller. For me, MML devolved into hagiography and at times insufferable sighing about art. This book is *about* art, but sadly fails to be a work of art itself. Lots of others have read it and loved it. I found it ride with affectation.

Lovely light allegory

Jeremy Irons was perfect. The story cut from an old tried and true fabric. Nothing new nothing too challenging, just follow your bliss. Good life philosophy. The writing is rather formulaic though.
