Praise for Becoming Modern
“For the whole of the twentieth century Mina Loy has been the Missing Person of Modernism; now at last Carolyn Burke has brought her to life, and into the life of her time. Becoming Modern is a perfect example of biographical recovery: it will change our sense of what happened back then, when art was being made new.” —Samuel Hynes
“A brilliant recovery of the mysterious life of the great lost "Anglo-mongrel" modernist. Loy, at last, becomes an equal in the company she kept.” —Eliot Weinberger
