"Tells story of Nahui Olin (whose real name was Carmen Mondragon). Prologue is by Elena Poniatowska who calls the author 'woman, mother, and reporter.' In turn Malvido calls Olin 'poet, painter, and muse.' In reality, Olin was an exotic, mysterious and complex beauty with extraordinary, wonderful eyes, animal appeal, and an upper-class upbringing; a colorful character of the times. During 1920-30s, Olin's association - not necessarily professional - with the muralists, and in particular with Dr. Atl and with photographers such as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Antonio Garduño, and Edward Weston, among others, produced audacious results for them. Work is entertaining despite poor layout. Reproductions confirm that the real talent of Ms. Olin was not in the plastic arts"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
