Reading this biography of "The Lonely Doll" author Dare Wright is a similar experience to reading "The Lonely Doll" books. Both Wright and her Lonely Doll character can be described as delicate but striking, with an air of tragedy or (as the title may suggest) loneliness. The paradigms between the author’s life and the main doll character in her books are very interesting, and the photographs included in this biography really help tell Wright’s personal story.

This is one book I couldn't put down ! Dare and her mother reminded me of The Beale's of Grey Gardens fame. A sad and fascinating story in both cases.

Delving into Dare's strange, sad, and almost fairytale-like life was absolutely fascinating. For a biography, I found The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll riveting. It's full of Dare's beautiful photography too!
