Description

Fascinated by his brilliant and beautiful mother, Felice, Henry Massie explores the many worlds she inhabited—and conquered—in this memoir. Possessed with a remarkable gift for reinventing herself, Felice was sent to Paris to be educated, and later fled her Polish shetl for Palestine when the Nazis came to power before World War II. Having escaped the Holocaust, she immigrated finally to America. She arrived penniless, worked first as a nanny for the president of Yale, and eventually married and settled in St. Louis. Drawn to the art world, she began collecting works in the new field of Abstract Expressionism, becoming active in the New York City art world, lecturing on modern art at Washington University, and eventually amassing a collection that included works by Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman, Franz Kline, Mark Rothko, and Willem de Kooning.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
