Fine.'Here is Eve Arnold - the distillation, in words and pictures, of her life and her lifework... Arnold's previous books have focussed on single subjects - the fifties, Marilyn Monroe, China, Great Britain, women. Eve Arnold: In Retrospect brilliantly encompasses the entire range of her experience in its narrative, illuminating a life devoted to hard work, exemplary professional and personal conduct, and a consuming curiosity about the world joined with a passion to portray it, while the nearly one hundred photographs display those same qualities through an almost unbelievable variety of subjects and styles. In a final welcome contradiction, the photographer Eve Arnold has become a writer of quiet authority and distinction, conveying her life of adventure and her qualities of mind and character in a way that leaves us fully persuaded and deeply admiring.
