"This is an intriguing and thought-provoking biography . . . Levine and Sebe offer a poignant and provocative study . . ."
�The authors� reconstruction of her life story is compelling reading. . . . Strongly recommended.

This is an intriguing and thought-provoking biography. . . . Levine and Sebe offer a poignant and provocative study. . . .
It is a minor classicbecause it is one of the very few books that have ever been written about the lowest and poorest, "les misrables" by one of themselves. Her book contains the seldom-told truth which inspires in some compassion, in some revulsion, and in others revolution.
