While writing a biography of a mysterious painter, a love-scarred author is forced to confront her own past
Polly Alter is through with men. Almost without realizing it, she has built an entirely female society for herself. Her friends and coworkers, and even her pharmacist, are all women, and all seem to be doing fine without the company of men. Recovering from her divorce, Polly has taken a year off from her museum job to write a biography of Lorin Jones, a sensitive painter who died young and nearly forgotten. Polly is determined to bring the artist the public acclaim she deserves, making up for the neglect and exploitation Lorin suffered from the men in her life. The only problem with the story of Lorin's victimhood is that it may not be true. And as Polly wades deeper into her research, growing more attached to her subject, and more lost in the world of two decades past, she begins to realize that no life story is as simple as a biographer might wish. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Alison Lurie including rare images from the author's collection.

I found the "man bashing" and lack of character development an issue with this book. The story line was a bit far fetched.
