Kahlo was selected as such an individual, despite her status as a self-styled martyr and lifelong invalid whose leg was finally amputated a year before her death from pneumonia. She was a high-spirited flirt and a rebellious bad girl who would often misstate her birth date to make it coincide with the beginning of the Mexican Revolution of 1910. We'll Help Your Grades Soar

Tired of reading all the Kahlo biographies full of facts in a "documentary style" format..? Then this book is for you. This Kahlo biography, with a splash of Mexican history, presents an in-depth look at the private life of this famous Mexican painter in the style of a novel. This book is written for young adult readers and is very well written, well organized, easy reading and full of tidbits of information not found in other books. Once you start to read it you can't put it down. When you're finished you will know and understand the real Frida Kahlo. Highly recommend this book to readers of all ages.

If you are looking for information on her paintings you won't find it here. Not much is said about her paintings and there are only 6 small color and 3 black & white illustrations of her paintings and 6 black & white photos. In the back of the book there is a very brief chronology.

I found "Frida Kahlo: Torment and Triumph in Her Life and Art" to be succinct and informative. Having just finished Hayden Herrera's biography of Kahlo I wasn't sure what to expect, as this book is one third in length. But as the saying goes, "don't judge a book by its cover". Drucker stays focused and presents a very direct and honest look into the sometimes joy filled but more often sorrow filled life of this magnificent artist.
