The Life of Ruth Asawa

by Chase, Marilyn

Gorgeous, photo-based non-fiction biography about the legendary artist Ruth Asawa.

Everything She Touched recounts the incredible life of the American sculptor Ruth Asawa. Ruth Asawa forged an unconventional path in everything she did - whether raising a multiracial family of six children, founding a high school dedicated to the arts, or pursuing her own practice independent of the New York art market.

This is the story of a woman who wielded imagination and hope in the face of intolerance and who transformed everything she touched into art. In this compelling biography, author Marilyn Chase brings Asawa's story to vivid life. She draws on Asawa's extensive archives and weaves together many voices - family, friends, teachers, and critics - to offer a complex and fascinating portrait of the artist.

Marilyn Chase is a graduate of Stanford University with a BA in English and also the University of California, Berkeley with a Master of Journalism. As a reporter at The Wall Street Journal, Chase covered a variety of medical beats including the biotechnology industry, disease research, and personal health for 30 years. She is the author of The Barbary Plague: The Black Death in Victorian San Francisco, (Random House, 2003) and was included in the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Program in Spring 2003.
