We Met in Paris : Grace Frick and Her Life with Marguerite Yourcenar Hardback
Grace Frick introduced English-language readers all over the world to the distinguished French author Marguerite Yourcenar with her award-winning translation of Yourcenar's novel Memoirs of Hadrian in 1954.
European biographies of Yourcenar have often disparaged Frick and her relationship with Yourcenar, however.
This work shows Frick as a person of substance in her own right, and paints a portrait of both women that is at once intimate and scrupulously documented.
It contains a great deal of new information that will disrupt long-held beliefs about Yourcenar and may even shock some of her scholars and fans.
