Karbo's Gift 16 novembre 2011
Par Dr. Jeanne Kane - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I'm most impressed with Karbo's ability to integrate and extrapolate. By this I mean, she takes vast amounts of data and documentation, mulls them over, and churns out a new take on one of the most powerful, influential women of our time. In that integration there is wisdom, humor, self-analysis and, of course, lessons to each of us about becoming who we are to be. When it comes to O'Keeffe, I thought I'd read most everything about her. Her work adorns my home. Yet, I'd forgotten her struggles and heartaches. From this book I'm reminded that there are productive times and healing times; that there are places that are truly our home even when least expected; that we make a difference often by saying no. This is a beautiful, thought provoking book.

Excellent Read 7 novembre 2011
Par Hannah Concannon - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I'll have to admit, I too am biased. I loved "How to Hepburn" and "The Gospel According to Coco Chanel" was just my style. I came to this book with high expectations, only to be blown away. This is, in my opinion, the best of Karbo's three books cataloguing the lives of inspiration women. In her characteristic witty style, Karbo gives the reader the perfect balance of history, hilarious personal anecdotes, and life advice. I think I may have a new personal idol, and it's definitely Georgia O'Keeffe. I had no idea she was so incredibly badass! We have so much to learn from this incredibly strong, creative, and independent woman, and Karbo captures it all in chapters titled with awesome action verbs like "Defy," "Grow," "Muddle," "Bare," and "Drive." Every chapter is also accompanied by a beautiful O'Keeffe Painting or a photograph of the artist. Georgia O'Keeffe was a woman who was unafraid to be completely, 100% unabashedly herself. Does that sound like something you want to do? Then GET THIS BOOK NOW and let Karen Karbo show you how! If you're looking for an informative, funny, and truly inspirational read, I'd definitely recommend this book.

A Gorgeous Little Book 5 novembre 2011
Par Danna W. Schaeffer - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Well, first of all, full disclosure: I loved Karen Karbo's Hepburn and Coco books, so I hardly came to this book unbiased. I gobbled this up in the same greedy way, half in prurient hope of finding out Georgia O'Keeffe secrets and half to find out ways to revolutionize my life. I read How Georgia Became O'Keeffe in one sitting and totally got what I came for. I really hadn't understood how original GOK was for her time and milieu, how she struck out on her own teaching in distant parts, to say nothing of painting exactly what she wanted. The Stieglitz thing is still mysterious, though Karbo does say "For all of his off-putting qualities, no one on earth believed in her vision and her genius more profoundly than did Stieglitz, and because of that he was irreplaceable." As for what is useful for the reader's own greedy self, the punchy list of verbs that make up the table of contents, like "defy," "grow," "adopt," "muddle," "embrace," are inspirational in themselves, and so are the GOK epigrams at the head of every chapter, like "Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant... making your unknown known is the important thing." (This is great news.) Of course, reading each chapter is essential; Karbo follows each compelling episode of GOK's life with a personal and often really funny riff of her own. It is the Karbo lens on O'Keeffe that makes the meaning and the fun in this book.

A final word: How Georgia Became O'Keeffe is a gorgeous physical specimen, a nice little handful, silky paper, yes, a pretty jacket, and a photograph or reproduction facing each chapter page. A succulent read in a succulent form.

Art and Creativity 22 décembre 2011
Par Ann Hite - Publié sur
Format: Relié
In the eighties I considered Georgia O'Keeffe my mentor. I was a writer she was an artist in her nineties. I'd never seen her in person, but I loved her art. What I saw in her work was freedom, a freedom that existed for women if they jumped into life with both feet. I saw strength to strike out on one's own. I only read one biography and found it dull. Mostly I relied on her art: the bones, flowers, and skyscrapers. When I heard an interview with Karen Karbo on Writers on Writing, I decided maybe I'd see what she had to say about O'Keeffe. I'm so glad I did. This beautiful book is a celebration of art, women, and creativity. While the book gave me a new take on O'Keeffe, it also made me want to go back to my writing desk and create art, to step away and give myself the space. Loved this book and carried it with me every where I went. I am sad to say I've finished reading it. What a extraordinary talented writer. Thank you for this book!

Don't Skip the Footnotes 8 février 2012
Par Vickie Wyatt - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I rushed through my morning tasks to get to this book, which I read one chapter at time during the morning hour that I have carved out for such things. Part of the draw was O'Keeffe. I'm still celebrating my discovery of her work as though it were yesterday, but had yet to discover her. That would not have been enough though to create the excitement that drew me back each morning. For that, I needed Karen Karbo's words: lively, personable, insightful, thought-provoking, and funny. You have longer, more detailed reviews to read, and I'm anxious to put quotes from the book in my Evernote collection, so I'll leave you with this: Don't skip the footnotes. Treasures and laughter wait for you there.
