Flappers: Six Women of a Dangerous Generation - Judith Mackrell

Poor Little Rich Girls

 

Yes, I know that it must have been tough for women in the early part of the 20th century, but at times the reactionary old curmudgeon in me couldn't help thinking Diana Cooper and Nancy Cunard had a bit of a Marie Antoinette reaction to WWI and didn't suffer the hardships that most of their countrywomen went through. Have now started on Tamara de Lempicka's story with Tallulah Bankhead, Zelda Fitzgerald, and Josephine Baker yet to come.  

 

Six women; all with fascinating stories to tell. And even though I do know a few details about all of them, I'm really looking forward to learning more. Particularly Tamara as I've always been a fan of her art.
