"Kanigel has written the definitive Jacobs biography . . . in prose that is as lively as her own." --The Washington Post

"Sparkling. . . . Magisterial. . . . An exhaustively researched, beautifully rendered tale, revealing the human contours of a vigorous, original mind." --Minneapolis Star Tribune
