“[Foursome covers] a fascinating subject, and Ms. Burke does it complete justice…That all four had unusual ideas about sexuality and honesty, as well as about creativity and art, makes for a compelling story…”

Wall Street Journal

“…deeply researched
and richly imagined…
Burke, reflecting her deep insight into [Foursome's] vastly creative artists, makes ingenious connections in their correspondence
and art that powerfully demonstrate that, even while plagued by tensions and rivalries, they elevated one another’s work.”
