This is a great book depicting writers of the twenties. I love the work of Edna St Vincent Millay, Dorothy Parker, Zelda Fiztgerald, and Enda Ferber, but even more exciting is reading about the authors themselves. They lived wild, unconventional lives and understanding them, brings more understanding to their work.
Meade moves back and forth between the different writers, moving from year to year in the twenties. This reads more like a novel than a biography and is well-written. It's really four biographies in one, but leaves out the usual dull stuff. I very much enjoyed this and recommend for anyone that is looking for a great non-fiction read and loves reading about writers!
