    A fantastic book, offering a chorus of opinions and views by McCarthy s friends, family and colleagues, former classmates, etc Couldn t ask for a fuller portrait of the woman and her work Her fascinating, multi faceted personality amplified by Kiernan s methodological choice.

    couldn t finish the book It was just too filled with details, too confusing in the presentation, and I didn t get that interested in the character I guess you have to be a real Mary McCarthy fan to get through the book.
