What Would Frida Do?

Arianna Davis extensively researched Frida Kahlo's life, art, and times to bring us this book, subtitled A Guide to Living Boldly. Even Frida's letters are poetic. Here is an excerpt after her accident in a letter to her then-boyfriend, Alejandro: "A little while ago, not much more than a few days ago, I was a child who went about in a world of colors, of hard and tangible forms . . . . If you knew how terrible it is to know suddenly, as if a bolt of lightning elucidated the earth. Now I live in a painful planet, transparent as ice; but it is as if I had learned everything at once in seconds."
