Biog of the Month

November's biography is Tamara de Lempicka: a life of Deco and Decadence by Laura Claridge.

It's a bit of a tricky one as art deco artist Tamara was a fantasist and a self inventor. She feared her background as a wealthy Jewish Russian was not bohemian enough so created her own life stories.

It makes you think about to what extent we create our own stories from our lives and how you create your image and identity.

One more biography to go and then it's on to Women and Travel 2015.
