Flash: The Making of Weegee the Famous Reviews

  • J.D. Dehart

    Flash is a well-written and thoughtful biographical work. Admittedly, prior to reading this book I was not familiar with Weegee the Famous.

    As a writer who dabbles into research, I appreciated the vast reading and detail author Christopher Bonanos brought to this book. I can see it as an enjoyable read on its own or a reading choice for arts-based courses.

    Highly recommended!
