Savage Beauty : Thomas Hardy once said that America had two great attractions: the skyscraper and the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay. The most famous poet of the Jazz Age, Millay captivated the nation: She smoked in public, took many lovers (male and female, single and married), flouted convention sensationally, and became, for many, the embodiment of the New Woman. Thirty years after the triumphant success of Zelda, Nancy Milford returns with a strong second act. Hailed by critics as a landmark biography, chosen by USA Today as one of the top ten books of the year, Savage Beauty uncovers for the first time the dark side of Millay's life - her dependence on fame and her harrowing descent into morphine addiction. Millay was an American original - one of those rare characters, like Sylvia Plath or Ernest Hemingway, whose lives are even more dramatic than their art.
