Annette Kobak’s book on her life indicates, from Isabelle’s writing, that this was due to general manners of Algerian Muslims – if she presented herself as a man, they wouldn’t ask any questions. Which is pretty cool. In her writing, it’s clear she viewed herself as a woman, though, so female pronouns here. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that much of the writing on her life focuses on her sex life. Next Time on Rejected Princesses.

The book is filled with very good research and history. But the author defeats her purpose with endless, tedious pop psychology trying to explain everyone's (especially Eberhardt's)reasons for being and doing what they do. I kept wanting to say, "Stop playing shrink!" Finally, I wound up skipping the explanations so that I could appreciate the historical narrative.

One of most boring books I've read!

If you can possibly get your hands on this book you will enjoy it. I was amazed at the endurance of this woman in the most perilous situations. At a time when French and English tourists were scavenging North Africa for art and experience, Isabelle was living the experience. She gives new meaning to the idea that in order to understand art you must live it. Read and enjoy!
