SILLY GIRL by Angn Enters


Email this review


Supplementary and complementary to earlier autobiographical material (First Persen Plural -- Stackpole, 1938) which tells of Angna Enters' approaches to Broadway and her success in her highly individual type of theatrical compositions. She tells the story in the third person; Ange's childhood, with neurotic parents, supplies many answers to the sources of the characters she . Her constant application to painting and how it to a search for line, which in turn directed her to the Japanese dancer, Micho I, and her own future career. The sordid, irresponsible chase he led her, the everpresent economic pressure, the evolution of her compositions and their eventual production, -- this is a record of an artist's development and growth, the creation of a new form of art, recounted with feeling and understanding.
