For those interested in the private life of Marcel Duchamp, Ruth Brandons Spellbound by Marcel: Duchamp, Love and Art, might come as a welcomed contribution to the extant literature on the artist. Although we already knew something about this subjectthanks, in part, to the definitive biography on the artist by Calvin Tomkins (from which this book draws heavily)this is the first time an author has carefully read the unpublished diaries of Duchamps two closest friends during his early years in New York.
