A brilliant and witty chronicle. . star – studded and light-filled, ‘ wrote John Richardson, biographer of Picasso, of Diana Souhami’s double portrait of Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas, The same is true for Souhami’s Greta and Cecil. Characterstically stylish, funny story of a bizarre romance where androgyny rules, rather than a heavy academic study. Wonderful double page spreads of both Garbo and Beaton dressed in male and female clothing.

Review: What an amazing book and photographs into the insight about the life of Greta Garbo and Ceil Beaton, he is a great photographer and a true inspiration.
