I also recently watched "Frida" and am so in love with the movie. Please share more suggestions for books, art, music, and movies to throw myself into. I have always been particularly taken with Mexican surrealism and colorful imagery (which makes it al the more nuts that I hadn't picked up this movie until now). Send me any ideas for keeping me in the wonderful dreamy bubble that I found myself in after watching this movie.

Accomplice in catastrophe
I just finished Savage Beauty by Nancy Milford. Its the biography of Edna St. Vincent Millay. Absolutely fabulous read! Its very interesting to know so much more about someone who wrote such beautiful poetry even if as a person, she was not the most admirable. Still I require plain prettiness from artists rather than ideal lifestyles. She was a fascinating woman and the book was so well written I am adding Milford's biography of Zelda Fitzgerald to my endless "To Be Read" list.
