At the age of nineteen, Kahlos life was transformed when the bus in which she was riding was hit by a trolley car. Pierced by a steel handrail and broken in many places, she entered a long period of convalescence during which she began to paint self-portraits. In 1928, at twenty-one, she joined the Communist Party and came to know Diego Rivera. The forty-one-year-old Rivera, Mexicos most famous painter, was impressed by the force of Kahlos personality and by the authenticity of her art, and the two soon married.

Though they were devoted to each other, intermittent affairs on both sides, Fridas grief over her inability to bear a child, and her frequent illnesses made the marriage tumultuous.This prose poem is typical Maso -- vigorous, daring, always original. She brings together parts of Kahlos biography, her letters, medical documents, and her diaries with language that is often as erotic and colorful as Kahlos paintings.
