SamenvattingBarney was born in 1876 to a wealthy American family from Ohio. After coming out as a lesbian in the U.S. (at 17, she had her first love affair with 20-year-old Evalina Palmer), she moved to Paris in 1899 and began a very public affair with Lilane de Pougy, celebrated courtesan and author of romantic potboilers. By 1903, Barney boasted of having 'the most respectable of bad reputations': no less then three literary works (including a novel by Colette) featured thinly veiled portraits of her as a notorious lesbian. Notoriety begot legend as Barney, became one of the most famous salonists in Paris as well as a noted poet and novelist who published 21 books.Rodriques writes about Barney's intense rivalry with Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas and about the long affair with painter Romaine Brooks.
