From Publishers Weekly
Twenty-five years in the making, this Hollywood novel by Pulitzer Prize–winner Frank (Louise Bogan: A Portrait) is a rich meditation on family, sex, responsibility and betrayal. Dinah Lasker, happily married with two children to successful Hollywood producer-writer-director Jake Lasker, finds her world upended when she is called to testify at the HUAC hearings of the Communist-baiting 1950s. To refuse would mean her husband will be blacklisted; to comply means she must "name" her sister, the always more glamorous Veevi, an unrepentant former Communist and actress living in Paris. Dinah's decision to testify takes place early in the novel and torments her throughout the decade or so that follows, but Frank gradually reveals that "fink" Dinah is really the only decent character in town. Former friends cut her...

The biography of poet Louise Bogan, who died in 1971, and whose poems collected in The Blue Estuaries, were first published in the 1920s. A prolific writer in her youth, Bogan was overcome by demons she could not master, and as this book reveals, struggled with a temper, paranoia and jealousy greater than anyone might have guessed. While Frank provides insightful descriptions of Bogan's childhood and her problematic relationship with her mother, she offers clues as to why the poet was so private and why it became increasingly difficult for her to write. The book won the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for biography.

Wilson Library Bulletin, Carol Moldaw
A thorough, cogent and dispassionate account of Bogan's life.

From Booklist
Vicente was part of the post^-World War I movable feast that generated modern art. He traveled from the small Spanish town of his birth to Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris, reaching his final destination, New York, in 1936, where he became one of the first abstract expressionists. He continues to explore this infinitely malleable form with fluency and an organic spirituality. Pulitzer Prize winner Frank summarizes Vicente's life quickly, then embarks on an in-depth analysis of his work. She notes that his early study of sculpture strongly influenced his painting, endowing it with substance no matter how atmospheric it became. Vicente honed his skill at conveying "movement and incident" in his early collages, which are so multidimensional they seem to pop right off their two-dimensional plane. This is due, in part, to the...

Book Description
In Syracuse, New York’s Pulaski Park, a bronze WWI soldier stands on a rock with his bayonet pointed out in front, ready to attack German forces. This is just one example of the works of art or other kinds of memorials to conflicts in which tens of thousands of people fought or suffered. This directory identifies such sites and makes them accessible to the traveler or researcher. This unique state-by-state reference covers monuments, memorials, museums, markers, statues and library collections that relate to the veterans, weapons, vehicles, airplanes, victims or any other aspect of war in which the United States participated. While a site may have been created before 1900 (such as a fort), there must be some operational or historical tie to a twentieth century conflict to be included here. General collections,...
