Jackie Wullschlager's wonderful biography moves with sure speed and
precise drama -- A.S. Byatt * Financial Times *
This is a masterly biography. Jackie Wullschlager has a painter's eye, a historian's grasp of context and a novelist's pace and momentum. She gives back to Chagall's paintings the sharpness and strangeness that they had for his contemporaries ... so gripping that I couldn't put the book down -- Hilary Spurling
