Abstract:

"Carlos Fuentes writes passionately and brilliantly about Frida Kahlo in the introduction of this book, which reproduces the pages and drawings of Kahlo's personal diary. Sarah M. Lowe, who wrote the commentaries and the essay, provides a more balanced view. Work is a curious gathering of thoughts and feelings, observations and annotations, and indeed makes the reader feel that he/she is entering forbidden and intimate territory. A deep realm, at times tender and dark, the book will probably make Kahlo's many fans eager to dive in"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
