Editorial Reviews

"A remarkably insightful, profoundly moving story of fraternal interdependence and unconditional love." -Kirkus, starred review"In fittingly painterly language, Heiligman offers vivid descriptions of Vincent's artworkand life, which grow more detailed and colorful as Vincent's own artistic style becomes richer and more refined . . . This illuminating glimpse into the van Goghs' turbulent life and historical period will add compelling depth to readers' understanding of the iconic painter. " -Booklist, starred review, on Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh BrothersCharles and Emma:National Book Award Finalist"The unlikely, and happy marriage of Charles Darwin and Emma Wedgewood comes to life in Heiligman's intelligent and fast-moving book." -New York Times Book Review"With empathy, humor and insight, Heiligman proves the truth of the maxim that behind every great man there is indeed a great woman. There have been many Darwin-themed books published this year . . . this is clearly the best." -NPR.org"This is the 'wow' biography on the Darwins-meticulously researched, richly rendered and rewarding every step of the way." -San Francisco Chronicle
