The daughter of a celebrity family who married Ozzie and Harriet Nelson's son Ricky, Tinker began to paint in the naive style after seeing an American primitive collection in her in-laws' home. Tinker paints from memory, for commissions, and also re-creates visions of family events from recollections supplied by her relatives. This autobiography in paintings presents more than 100 works created over 35 years, combined with entries from Tinker's journals, poems, quotes, and old family photos. The paintings offer a simplistic charm while capturing a moment in time, and the emotionally linked text recalls happiness, dreams, and despair. For libraries with comprehensive art collections that include studies of naive artists or those who paint in the folk style.?Judith Yankielun Lind, Roseland Free P.L., N.J.

This scrapbook-cum-autobiography by Kristin Nelson Tinker is a quick trip from the 1960s to the '90s, as seen through the lens of her primitivist paintings, family photographs and snatches of text. Tinker's life is emblematic of postwar prosperity in California: her father was the all-American halfback Tom Harmon, her mother the movie actress Elyse Knox and her brother the actor Mark Harmon. -- The New York Times Book Review, Eric P. Nash
