    Real Women of Genius honours Marie Curie not only because she was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize but because she also holds the distinction of being the only woman to have won two Nobel Prizes for her scientific discoveries. With her husband Pierre Curie and Henri Becquerel, in she shared the prize for physics.   Genius: A Mosaic of One Hundred Exemplary Creative Minds by Harold Bloom pp, Fourth Estate, £ Harold Bloom published 25 books before this one, and some of them are almost as long.

While much of the book is clumsy, contrived, and silly, it is while reading passages of the diary that one may actually find oneself laughing out loud.
