Lost and found 5 Nov. 1999
By "blissengine" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Much thanks to Mathilda Hills for bringing this story to us! This beautiful and lyric love story is only heightened by the biographical information Hills provides. I hope the publisher will eventually provide a paperback edition, so more people would be enticed to read this stunning tale.

Witty and passionate autobiography-as-fiction 26 July 2002
By Michelle Erica Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Anyone who has read Anderson's wonderful autobiography ('My Thirty Years' War,' 'The Fiery Fountains,' 'The Strange Necessity,' all sadly now out of print) must read this novel -- it has the same ebullient, erudite tone and the same passion for life. Many of the characters' names are thinly-veiled pseudonyms for the real people in Anderson's life, and Mathilda Hills fills in the blanks in her long introduction which explains how she came to find this manuscript. This is a priceless piece of Modernist history and a great lesbian love story, but I think it will be appreciated best by those already familiar with Anderson, founder of 'The Little Review,' and her personal history.

Interesting 25 Aug. 2010
By sweet beluga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Margaret Anderson, Georgette Leblanc,Dorothy Caruso, Elizabeth Jens Clark, Solita Solano, Kathryn Hulme, Jannet Flanner... they are the most interesting part of the book, what Mathilda Hills tells in the preface. The book has many interesting pictures of all of them.
The Forbiden Fires story is a good story that gets much more interesting if one knows about Anderson life, about her lovers, work and the times she lived in.
