I received a digital ARC of this book via @netgalley in return for an honest review.
*
*

I’ll begin by saying that I know very little about #FridaKahlo and I was thrilled at the chance to learn about her through this book. By the end, I was left dizzy and feeling as if I had wandered through a maze in search of the elusive Frida, who I never found.

Other reviews praise this book as “well researched” but in my honest opinion, any book with over 30 (!) footnotes per chapter is anything but well researched, and is instead chock full of cribbed notes. The book is very shoddily put together, and jumps around so much and so quickly that, as I said, I felt dizzy.

To sum up, I think I could easily have learned as much, and more linearly, from Wikipedia. I will be getting the #HaydenHerrera biography of Kahlo.
