Lee Miller: A Life
Carolyn Burke
0375401474
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Miller (1907–1977) began her career as a fashion model, and quickly decamped for Paris, where she became Man Ray's muse and student. After they split, she returned to Manhattan for a brief stint as a studio photographer, but eventually returned to Europe. Her surrealist background led to her taking stunning photos of the London Blitz, but she shot her most memorable—and disturbing—images accompanying American troops from Paris to Dachau as a war correspondent for Vogue. Burke's meticulously detailed biography reveals how keenly Miller's wartime experiences haunted her during her final troubled decades, but it also probes sympathetically into the artist's other significant trauma: a childhood rape, which was, Burke conjectures, exacerbated by her father's practice of photographing her nude well...

Semi-Homemade Desserts
Sandra Lee (Editor)

September 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In this newest by Lee, author of the bestselling Semi-Homemade Cooking, a typical ingredients list reads like an index of advertising sponsors-Duncan Hines, Nestle, Carnation. According to Lee, that's the idea. Why buy fresh ingredients when you can buy mixes and prepared foods that allow you to skip a few steps? The gimmick-buy name-brand food items and transform them into glorious dishes-is a good one, but the results are often less than satisfactory. (One additional downside with this approach-aside from the chemical and additives involved-is that many of these dishes emphasize attitude rather than flavor.) Recipes such as Pastel Petit Fours, which are relatively time-intensive, look much better than they taste. This is less true of the Frozen Oreo Cake, but the Easter Bunny Cake (which requires eight...

Book Review
A Letter from Anne McCaffrey about Crystal Dragon:

Every now and then you come across an author, or in this case, a pair, who write exactly what you want to read, the characters and personalities that make you enjoy meeting them. Apart from my passion for Kim by Rudyard Kipling, I had read some authors whose books I would buy the moment they came on sale (thanks to Amazon’s policy and pre-ordering facility) and then there are the precious few who sit in honor on my comfort shelf. The books I reach for when something in life has become intolerable. And I rediscover the joy that had infused me at the first reading. Such a book was "Agent of Change" first published by Del Rey. When I had finished, hungering for more, I got in touch with Shelly Shapiro, my editor at Del Rey and, prayers answered, she had the...



Tub Toys

From Publishers Weekly
With a passion approaching that of Ernie for his rubber ducky, the young narrator extols the joys of trotting out so many tub toys at bathtime that "there's not a spot for me!" As ablution accoutrements accumulate, first-time illustrator Calderon's digital pictures employ the kind of exaggerated, plasticine-textured characterizations (complete with oversize heads), vertiginous perspectives (one of which displays the narrator's skinny rear to great comic effect) and vaguely retro gestalt that will make fans of Nickelodeon animation feel right at home. Among the many sight gags are the boy's Rube Goldberg-like contraptions; he uses a toy crane to lower his "windup froggy friend" into the drink and devises an elaborate conveyor belt to ease the embarkation of the rest of his animal figures (as well as the family...


Lee Miller's War

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The full range of Lee Miller's outstanding photographs from World War II, accompanied by her brilliant dispatches.Lee Miller's work for Vogue from 1941 to 1945 sets her apart as a photographer and writer of extraordinary ability. Her words combine immediacy with acute observation, and deep personal involvement with professional detachment. Complementing her writing here are two hundred remarkable photographs from the Lee Miller Archives. They show war-ravaged cities, buildings, and landscapes; but above all they portray war-resilient people—soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees, prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains, and the heroes.There is the raw edge of combat portrayed at the siege of St. Malo and in the bitterly fought Alsace campaign, and the disbelief and outrage Miller describes on witnessing the...

Lincoln's Virtues: An Ethical Biography
William Lee Miller
0375701737
February 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
William Lee Miller's Lincoln's Virtues is less an "event" chronology than the tracing of the moral and ethical core of Abraham Lincoln's beliefs, what Miller calls the man's "unintended preparation for greatness." Miller posits that Lincoln rightly deserves his nonpareil place in American history. But, he continues, Lincoln's greatness is best appreciated only when we realize he was merely mortal and therefore free to follow any number of courses of actions. Miller, through scores of eloquent exegeses of Lincoln's writings and speeches, explores the path--consistent, though evolving--this free agent took. Lincoln chose politics as his work. As a politician he was subject to the very real constraints of collective action. However, such was the man's "moral self-confidence," that the mantle of greatness alit on his...

From Publishers Weekly
Roanoke: Solving the Mystery of the Lost Colony by Lee Miller provides clear and convincing explanations for the disappearance of the late 16th-century British settlement on Roanoke Island off North Carolina. In probing Native American land disputes and intrigue, Miller uncovers the reasons for the colonists' disappearance. Miller's prose is commanding as she speculates on what really happened to the colonists after they left Roanoke and on the inevitability of their leaving. An ethnohistorian and anthropologist, Miller authoritatively removes the fog she claims was intentionally wrapped around this mystery.

The Lives of Lee Miller
Antony Penrose
0500275092
Apr 1999
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Lee Miller exemplified the restlesness of the Lost Generation. She was a stunningly beautiful Vogue model, a fine photographer who studied with and was the lover of Man Ray, a war correspondent, and in later life a gourmet cook. She was married twice: first to an Egyptian businessman and then to British surrealist Roland Penrose. Lavishly illustrated with Miller's own work, Penrose's tribute to his mother brings to life a uniquely talented women and the turbulent times in which she lived. This opulent book, like its subject, is multi-faceted. Penrose has produced a work that is part picture book, part biography, part social history, and successful in all aspects. Highly recommended.

From Publishers Weekly
This collection of over 150 photographs chronicles the model-turned-freelance photographer's distinctive 30-year career, from her beginnings as a portraitist with Man Ray, through her long association with Vogue magazine. Two-thirds of Miller's oeuvre consists of portraits; while most here are of famous artists and writers (René Magritte, Pablo Picasso, Ivy Compton-Burnette), the most arresting portraits come from her work as a WWII photoreporter for Vogue (at the time, Vogue was one of the leading publications for war coverage). Miller's frontal-view compositions reveal her frank and unflinching attitude toward the world around her; the disturbing close-ups of female collaborators in Paris and the smashed nose of an SS prison guard in Buchenwald repel even as they compel. Calvocoressi, the director of the...
