ALL OUR LIVES: Alice Duer Miller

Email this review


Is it trite to suggest that this might have been called Life with Alice? For that is what it is, rather than straight biography. It is also a story of a successful marriage, made up of day scraps from life's scrapbag, pieced together into a crazy quilt of reminiscences, specdotes, quotations from her writings, a miscellany of excerpts and passages from familiar -- but not always notable -- sources, and composing in all a nostalgic recapturing of a way of life that is no more, as well as etching in sharp portraiture, two very definite personalities. It has a certain indefinable charm, and a good deal of snob appeal.
