Heaven's Bride and the Sexologist's Secret

Paul Harvey

Ida Craddock was a dreamy, driven autodidact who was in her own strange way more American than the persecuting agent of the state, Anthony Comstock. Heavenly bride, free-speech martyr, full-blown American eccentric, Craddock is reanimated by Mr. Schmidt's biography.

Heaven’s Bride is a brilliant work of intellectual reclamation. Schmidt calls Craddock “an escape artist of the imagination,” who ”tried to lift herself free on the paired wings of Eros and divine love.” If her story skews perilously close to the ridiculous at times, he never for a moment allows us to forget that it is fundamentally a tale of thwarted genius, of boundless courage, and, ultimately, of visionary splendor.
