This book is Jean Chalon's portrait of Natalie Barney, the undisputed seductress of the Fin de siècle, and beyond. Make no mistake about it, this is not a proper biography but rather a portrait, and more accurately a tribute. The author's adoration for his subject is clear and he makes no attempt to restrain himself. It seems Chalon too was seduced by Barney. He can however be forgiven for this, for his is in good company. After all, royalty, famous demimonde courtesans and literary legends too fell under her spell, and so it isn't surprising a young journalist would also. If you're considering reading this book and have not yet read a proper biography (Rodriguez) on the subject, I would suggest doing that before picking this book up. Despite the author's enthusiastic and compromised perspective, it is an invaluable work that offers insights others do not. Chalon knew Barney for 10 years of her life and was a close acquaintance. Personal letters given to Chalon by Barney are featured. First-hand quotes are included as well as stories found nowhere else. For anyone wanting to indulge themselves into Barney's life, wanting to learn more about this fascinating woman, should read this book. It is essential material. Chalon's enthusiasm and the translator's diligent efforts make this an easy, fast and enjoyable read.

she was a icon, a pioneer, a gay woman who was incredibly brave and smart and cool. every gay woman should read her, every non gay woman should read her. she is a great inspiration. a turn of the century american who lived in paris and made a million friends of all kinds, who helped support artists, and was unabashedly herself. she said that she was a lesbian, it was nothing to boast of, or be ashamed of. talk about being ahead of her time! this was said during the era when queen victoria said she would not outlaw sex between women, because it was impossible. little did she know!!
