Guggenheim book

For those of you not yet bored with my years of raving/ranting about Peggy Guggenheim and her family, you may be interested in chasing the following new book.

Readers of my blog will have seen previous mention of Mary Dearborn's biography of Guggenheim herself: "The Mistress of Modernism". Now there is a new book on the family due out by Irwin and Debi Unger called, simply, The Guggenheims. For those interested in this extraordinary family, it will be interesting to see what they manage to do with the Guggenheim stories not yet covered by previous biographies by authors such as Harvey O'Connor and John H. Davis. I will get a copy ordered and post my response.
