Was artist Clara Driscoll really the force behind the iconic Tiffany lampshade? Vreeland’s novel focuses on the theme of artistic innovation, and Kimberly Farr’s narration gives a convincing picture of a woman forgotten by time. In passionate tones Farr portrays Clara’s story amid the Bohemian life of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. With a mix of accents she places Clara in the midst of a bevy of immigrant “Tiffany Girls,” who inspire her to fight for artistic recognition. Farr’s reading portrays Clara’s inner battles as well—her heartbreak in the aftermath of difficult relationships, her mixed feelings about Louis Tiffany, her growth from needing personal affirmation to championing her employees, and her drive for continued creative expression.
