REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 18-May-2006)

Camille Claudel is one of the great films of all times. Isabel Adjani and Gerard Depardeau give superb portrayals of Claudel and Rodin. Anyone who cares about sculpture, fine art, fine writing, and great acting should not miss this film. People who love this film will also love my new book,CAMILLE CLAUDEL, A NOVEL, which I believe shares the pathos and fascination of the movie. The book, which was published recently, tells a juicy story of love, infidelity and creative genius. Camille Claudel was a great female sculptor who produced most of her work in the late 1800's. Fueled by the rejection of her lover and teacher, Auguste Rodin, and the lack of recognition of her superb artistry, she became insane. The book reveals a magnificent love story, and illuminates the difficulties faced by women artists at that time. It also gives great insight into the creative process and the mind of a genius, as well as the techniques used by both Claudel and Rodin. Dr. Alma Bond, psychoanalyst and author of 11 other books, including The Autobiography of Maria Callas, a Novel, Who Killed Virginia Woolf? and Tales of Psychology: Short Stories to Make You Wise, is highly qualified to provide profound insight into the psyche of the two great artists, as well as Camille’s descent into madness. Reviews have been unanimously rave. So far there are 32 of them, including Bookwire, which wrote, " Combining an astonishing depth of historical research with a fertile imagination and great psychological insight." Most stress that the book is a page turner, and once picked up, cannot be put down. Alma H. Bond, Ph.D. Author of 12 books, including "Camille Claudel, a Novel."
