Mina Loy- that’s her on the book cover, invokes the image of a woman sitting against a wall with words, colorful words scattered all around her. Whether she would gather them in a notebook or splash them on an empty canvas to give some form to her whims is an act of that untranslatable artistic defiance that one can witness but can’t categorize under some conventional genre.

Mina Loy (born Mina Gertrude Löwy; 27 December 1882– 25 September . It is about the relationship between a German artist, Insel, and an art dealer, Mrs. Jones
Mina Loy (born Mina Gertrude Löwy; 27 December 1882– 25 September 1966), was a British artist, writer, poet, playwright, novelist, futurist, feminist, designer of lamps, and bohemian. She was one of the last of the first generation modernists to achieve posthumous recognition. Loy’s poetry was published in several magazines before being published in book form. The magazines that she was featured in include Camera Work, Trend and Rogue. Jones.
Insel, the only novel by the surrealist master Mina Loy, is a book like no other-about an impossible friendship amid the glamorous artistic bohemia of 1930s Paris.
As Elizabeth Arnold explains in her afterword, Insel is Loy’s prose-rendering of what transpired between those dates. Strung from a series of impossible happenings, furred with bizarre blooms and spasmodically fluctuating between revulsion and fascination, the story of Insel and Mrs. Jones is not a love story.
Mina Loy. On my throwing open a window, he hooked his arm round his neck, rubbing the mastoid. I have lain here for two whole days, he said, ferocious with dignity. ass German, his very existence an insolence, wearing a shirt from a cheap shop-Insel must have thrown himself away with his old black sweater above which his former face had risen like a worn, pocked moon. Unquestionably, I had cured him. Here was the normal man. An Insel unobsessed. Someone replacing himself, his mesmeric, melodic voice exchanged for a hostile creak.
