1929, Montparnasse. Model and woman about town Lee Miller moves to Paris determined to make herself known amidst the giddy circle of celebrated artists, authors, and photographers currently holding court in the city. She seeks out the charming, charismatic artist Man Ray to become his assistant but soon becomes much more than that: his model, his lover, his muse.

Coming into her own more fully every day, Lee models, begins working on her own projects, and even stars in a film, provoking the jealousy of the older and possessive Man Ray. Drinking and carousing is the order of the day, but while hobnobbing with the likes of Picasso and Charlie Chaplin, she also falls in love with the art of photography and finds that her own vision can no longer come second to her mentor's.

The Woman in the Photograph is the richly drawn, tempestuous novel about a talented and fearless young woman caught up in one of the most fascinating times of the twentieth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An intriguing, elegant novel. Dana Gynther's portrayal of Lee Miller's fascinating life in 1920s Paris makes for compelling reading."
-- Hazel Gaynor, New York Times bestselling author of THE GIRL WHO CAME HOME and A MEMORY OF VIOLETS
"By turns glamorous and brilliant, tender and tenacious, Lee Miller captured hearts with her photographs and her vibrant persona. Dana Gynther brings the story of the incomparable beauty and her tumultuous relationship with artist Man Ray to vivid life in her latest novel, The Woman in the Photograph." -- Heather Webb, author of RODIN'S LOVER
"Vivacious and rebellious, Lee Miller strides across the pages of The Woman in the Photograph with her inimitable style. From artistic garrets to Man Ray's photography studio to the elite offices of Vogue, Dana Gynther plunges us into the whirlwind of 1920s Paris." -- C.W. Gortner, author of MADEMOISELLE CHANEL
"Gynther captures the naughty, bawdy `20s to perfection with her large and colorful cast of characters... Art and the creative process are at the heart of Gynther's novel, along with portraits of people we wish to know and a story for readers to devour." * RT Book Reviews *
