My Faraway One by Sarah Greenough.. A little bit porn, a little bit Arts and Letters, this heavy tome will reveal things you may not want to know when looking at Steiglitz’s masterful nudes of O’Keefe. Then again, you may. Great love is timeless.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"A marvellous correspondence personally and culturally evocative."

The Financial Times

"In “My Faraway One,” Sarah Greenough, a senior curator at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, has assembled some 650 letters into a volume that is basically a love story pitched at the highest romantic level."

The New York Times
