The biography of Natalie Clifford Barney, a charismatic, brilliant, and beautiful American writer best known for three things: her Left Bank literary salon, often acknowledge as the most important of the twentieth century; her books of epigrams about life, love, and the nature owomanhood; and a liberated approach to sex that she refused to cloak, even in the midst of the Victorian era.
