KIRKUS REVIEW

Hardly intimate portrayals, these are the stories of six successful duos, who achieved fame as a team in their respective fields. The incomparable Lunts represent the theatre world. A brief glance at their success in the twenties through modern times is clarified by illustrative backstage anecdotes. Pierre and Marie Curie are next on the list and the author stresses their joint contributions to science. Anne Morrow was one wife so deeply imbued with her husband's interests that she became a member of Lindbergh's crew on many dangerous flights. The story of Dewitt and Lila Wallace runs parallel to the evolution of Readers Digest. Martin and Osa Johnson, both skilled photographers, travelled the earth together in search of pictures that eventually graced countless magazines, books and movies. Lady Churchill is perhaps the only partner considered who played the role of wife and helpmate exclusively. These are factual accounts highlighting the careers, not the personalities of these talented couples.
