'Writing with her customary flair and acuity, Maria Tippett has given us a marvellous portrait of Yousuf Karsh and his long and interesting career. She has also deepened our understanding of the role of photography in the cultural and artistic history of the twentieth century.' --Margaret MacMillan, author of Peacemakers and Nixon in China
'... [an] excellent biography.'
