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.

Meowy Christmas!

Christmas 2024!

Yup, it's Christmas 2024!

See you again on January 3rd! Admin is closed until then!

Seriously--we "mostly" close from December 24th-ish until the middle of the week, first week of January. Production is still steaming along, but admin takes a desperately-needed break for ~10 days. We'll answer any emails that seem in dire straights, but generally speaking, we're mostly gone for that period of time.  See ya when we return!--Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
