Editorial Reviews

Review



"Absolutely fantastic...superb in its entirety" 



—Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

"A classic from one of the first prominent female journalists in America."
—Kathryn Schulz, New York Magazine

"Splendid...The only thing unbelievable about Nellie Bly is that it’s taken this long for her work to be recognized—and with a life story this rich, where is the biopic? Thanks to this new collection at least, Bly’s life work will be accessible for a whole new world of readers."
The Daily Beast

"From the start, Bly is a natural writer. Her voice is caustic and confident, lilting effortlessly between the gush and private wonder of a schoolgirl’s diary and the rigor of the most celebrated political reporters of her time. "
The New Inquiry

“If you’ve never read any of 19th-century journalist Nellie Bly’s work, this is the place to start. And if you’re a longtime fan of the first ‘girl stunt reporter,’ this is definitely a tome worth adding to your library…. [Bly] made indelible observations about a woman’s place in the world that are no less valuable today than they were 150 years ago.”
Bust Magazine

"The editing is outstanding, providing the backstory for this important but all too often neglected figure in American journalism."
Huntington News

I loved it. I expected just the trip around the world and got almost all her writings even through the first World War. Very interesting reading.
