Powell’s Books picks their favorite review of a book to share with their followers in their “Daily Dose” and today’s Dose is THE BEAUTIFUL AMERICAN by Jeanne Mackin! The review – “This newest novel from Jeanne Mackin is a breathtaking look at art and politics in the years leading up to World War II. Based on the life of the beautiful Lee Miller, the model turned photographer, it follows the friendship between Lee and Nora, a childhood friend who meets up with her again in the dizzying Paris of the 30’s and 40’s….The novel is beautifully written, carefully researched, a can’t-put-it-down-read.”
