FROM THIS EPISODE

lives_muses.jpgThe Lives of the Muses: Nine Women and the Artists They Inspired (Harper Collins)
Francine Prose's new book is a series of "brief lives" of women who inspired famous men, from the real-life Alice of Alice in Wonderland to Yoko Ono. Hear about the odd couplings of the unsocialized Mr. and Mrs. Salvador Dali, the sex-crimes of the pre-Raphaelites, and the three-way rivalries engineered by Lou Andreas-Salome. The conversation is a tabloid collage of intellect and sexuality informed by Ms. Prose's cool wit.
