To Seize the Passing Dream A Novel of Whistler, His Women and His World Critical Comment: A fascinating story, very well written. This is must reading. Sheilah Graham, United Features Syndicate By some mysterious alchemy, Mr. Berkman has caught both man and artist, pinned them down like the butterfly which was Whistler's signature. Sallie C. Lampee, Sacramento Union There's wit here, and art -- a story that will haunt you, about a man you will not forget. Cleveland Amory Wonderfully written, the type of book you do not wish to put down. Ted Berkman has convincingly captured the era, the styles of the individuals portrayed, and while it is obviously largely a fictional reconstruction, it reads like a very convincing observation. Richard H. Randall, Jr. Director, the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore (Md.) Mr. Berkman has created a triumph. He sets the stage brilliantly in his Prologue. The complexities of Whistler's life are richly handled. The man behind the public mask emerges through Berkman's careful detailing and truly brilliant characterization. So few fictionalized biographies successfully wed fact with believable dialogue. Mr. Berkman's years of research have paid off. Pomona (CA) Progress-Bulletin
