Frida Kahlo, the writer? This new expanded edition of the painter’s letters, poems, and miscellaneous writings, selected by art critic Raquel Tibol, reveals the considerable but little-known literary talent of Frida, and constitutes a “tacit autobiography” of the painter. In this self-portrait we see Frida, in Tibol’s words, “swinging back and forth between sincerity and manipulation, self-complacency and self-flagellation, with her insatiable need for affection, her erotic upheavals, her touches of humor…” As the figure of Frida becomes increasingly fixed –and inevitably distorted– as a cultural icon, this book recovers the artist as she saw and expressed herself, her “soul and intimacy laid bare.”
