Reviews

"Bonyhady has delved deeply into his forebears' concert books, travel logs, letters, and death certificates in an effort to reconstruct his family's identity and, for his mother, to place 'a value on her life that she did not.' The result is a lucid, poignant generational tale of loss of material wealth and cultural identity that provides new perspective and insight into both Holocaust and immigration studies."
--Booklist

"Tim Bonyhady goes far beyond the story of how a great art collection came into being, with rich descriptions of the political, social, and cultural context of Vienna from the turn of the 20th century to 1938."
-- Victoria Newhouse Praise from Australia for Good Living Street

"Arts aficionados will be mesmerized here by Bonyhady's meticulous research of Vienna as an important centre of European arts modernism . . . Good Living Street is a captivating tour-de-force . . . Bonyhady deploys a genre of writing that impressively and poetically weaves together art, social and cultural histories and deeply reflexive investigative family biography with a mesmerizing, galloping narrative--it is at once a book that is arts educational and highly political and personal."
--Jon Altman, Art Monthly Australia "Good Living Street is something of a m lange, although rich as an expensive cake tray . . . a rich tapestry of intriguing stories."
--Chris Wallace-Crabbe, The Saturday Age
