It's an interesting story, well told, though Mr. Jendreyko overworks some documentary fallbacks: gnarled fingers, the view from a moving train.

Geier, who died in 2010, speaks on all subjects -- from her son's mortal injury to the nature of her various collaborations -- with the contemplative, courtly intelligence of her favorite novels.

It would probably be enough just to observe Geier's daily routine; she's fascinating even when silently contemplating a page in her next project.
