My LifeBook - 2006
Doris McCarthy: My Life is a wonderfully frank look at a life lived within beauty and without regret. McCarthy's sense of artistry, transmitted over a sixty-year painting career, celebrates multiple beauties—of nature, of relationships, and of everyday life.
Still, McCarthy encountered difficulties along the way, including an estrangement from her mother, a painful affair with a married man, and long years of working overtime to fulfill her dreams. This memoir marries the best of McCarthy's previous writings with exciting new material and traces a compelling woman's life from energetic early girlhood to reflective old age.
