Having visited the Guggenheim Collection in Venice I was intrigued to learn more about the lady herself, and this autobiography gave a good, easy to read insight into her life. Also getting the Kindle version was a real bonus.

A "must have" book for any art lover! 22 Jan. 1999
By AZodrow@aol.com or Marialuisa Zodrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a book you do not want to finish, you constantly wish that as you progress in your reading as the book will unfold in more pages. It does not happen. What a life story, full of art and style. What a charming book, simple and direct. Easy to read but so full of references to the Art of this Century. Peggy lived and tell the life of a brilliant collector not only of art pieces but of emotions and feelings. To me this is one of the best books of the year. It goes on top of DV by Diana Vreeland on my nightstand.

Confessions, Sort Of 8 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Peggy was a trip. She also apparently had no editor, or so it seems, which adds to the air of entitlement and oblique charm that permeates this book. Her accounts are interesting historically, though PG's slant on history is sometimes its own beast. This is a quick read and some of her observations will make you laugh out loud ("I was worried about my virginity--I was twenty-three and I found it burdensome..."), while others are chilling, especially the question of which Jews she deemed worthy of her efforts to help them get to the States. This may be more entertaining than informative, but it's both.

LOOK, THERE'S A LONG PRIAPUS ON YOUR HORSE! 25 Aug. 2000
By Darwin Mayr Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Here's the story of a woman that knew them all, felt the earth move under her feet with many of them, and bought their art for pretty much nothing. She recognized them when they were starting, and this makes her a Princess. This book is her equivalent to Gore Vidal's "Palimpsest" and Lillian Hellman's "Pentimento". This is one of those books that almost transports you to a long gone era, and makes you wish you could have been there to see it all.

Shortened and censored version of "Out of this Century : Confessions of an Art Addict" by Peggy Guggenheim 30 Aug. 2013
By Claudia Caprarola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Shortened and censored book of the true autobiography of Peggy Guggenheim titled "Out of this Century : Confessions of an Art Addict" at the moment - 30 august 2013 - not available to Kindle readers.
The very similar title is misleading and I suggest not to read it.
While the full autobiography "Out of this Century: Confessions of an Art Addict" is really enjoyable, full of wit and very open about her private life so strongly interwoven with her activity of collector, this shortened version looks like a flat puritan resumè.

A good beach read but... 22 April 2013
By a-z shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really wanted the unedited version. I enjoyed this book but half way through realized there was hardly any sex mentioned. Peggy edited it out at some point and this is that post-edit version. That makes it a bit dull, especially for a beach read which is all this book is good for, it's very light. I want the dirt!
