This intimate chronicle of Marc Chagall by his companion (and mother of his son, David) is Haggard's tribute to the seven years they shared. The author, a niece of Rider Haggard, herself travelled on the fringe of art and literary circles in Europe and the United States, and she became Chagall's mistress in 1945. Through her text, the reader is able to experience some of the intimate encounters of artists with other artists; Picasso, for example, was obviously hero and adversary for Chagall. This partial biography is a good account of Chagall the man and the artist, and the author never drops celebrated names for the sake of it, nor begs for favor from the reader; she is fair and factual in telling her story. Recommended for most collections. Virginia A. Doser, Saddleback Coll., Mission Viejo, Cal.
