A biography of five women painters who revolutionized American modern art, from National Book Award finalist Mary Gabriel

NINTH STREET WOMEN is the impassioned, wild, alternately tragic and exhilarating story of five women--Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler--who dared to enter the macho world of mid-20th century abstract painting not as muses, but as artists.
