The reviews from Publishers Weekly and The Library Journal are right on the money. It's a very enjoyable narrative, revolving around Man Ray but also a richly contextualized history of Dadaism and Surrealism and the political, cultural, and social repercussions of these movements and the fascinating personalities behind them.
