Synopsis: "Long though it is, this English version of TinÂisima, Poniatowska's novel based closely on the life of Italian photographer Tina Modotti (1896-1942), represents a considerable abridgment of the original. Implicitly, however, the textual recreation is the work of Poniatowska herself, who signs the acknowledgments, thanks Katherine Silver (whose translation is excellent), and writes a new dedication for the book"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.http://www.loc.gov/hlas/A fictionalized account of Tina Modotti's life covers her relationship with photographer Edward Weston, their time in Mexico, her involvement with the Mexican Communist Party, and her eventual flight to the U.S.S.R. while under suspicion for the murder of her lover

Review: Using quotations from actual letters, characters under their actual names, and events straight out of history, Mexican novelist Elena Poniatowska has reimagined the life of actress and Communist agent Tina Modotti. Modotti was the lover of photographer Edward Weston, the friend of Diego Rivera and other artists, and an agent for the Soviet Union during the murky events of the Spanish Civil War. Poniatowska brushes aside questions of morality and politics to present Tina Modotti as an impetuous romantic, a heroine regardless of the rightness of her cause. The Spanish Civil War forms the backdrop for the last and most dramatic stage of Modotti's life: she was the lover of Vittorio Vidali, who specialized in assassinating anti-Stalinist leftists. Regardless of the stature of the book as literature, it gives a portrait of one of the most fascinating characters on the world stage between the World Wars.
