Editorial Reviews

Review

“Elegantly weaving existing memoir and letters into a beautifully constructed narrative, Blum brings to convincing and exciting life the early years of Margaret Mead. Mead's ‘coming of age’, both intellectually and sexually, turns out to have been no less fascinating than that of the Samoan girls she famously studied. Blum's story is absorbing, surprising, and eminently satisfying.” —Marisa Silver, author of Little Nothing and Mary Coin

"Deborah Beatriz Blum is a splendid storyteller, and what a terrific story she tells: the adventurous early life and loves of the strangely alluring Margaret Mead. With deep research and narrative energy, Blum presents a revelatory, intimate portrait of the young Mead, before, and during her nine months in Samoa, when her passionate secret life was wakening." —Jeffrey Frank, author of national bestseller Ike and Dick: Portrait of a Strange Political Marriage

"Coming of Age is nearly impossible to stop reading. While we think of Margaret Mead as a trailblazing anthropologist, until now we have known nothing of the workings of her heart, and how the turmoil and ecstasy in her private life illuminated the culture-changing work she performed in the South Pacific. Now—at last—Deborah Beatriz Blum reveals the truth about one of the 20th century’s great heroines, in prose that's wise and luminous. As Blum makes clear, Mead’s greatest research subject may have been the enigma of her own desire.” —Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of She's Not There and Long Black Veil

"Through Blum's narrative, Mead becomes more than a quotable female pioneer and transforms into a three-dimensional woman." —Library Journal (starred review)

“Blum’s vivid and personal reimagining is an entertaining addition to the constellation of work on this important figure, giving insight into the vulnerable girl’s heart behind the groundbreaking work.” Publishers Weekly

"[An] absorbing...breathless page-turner." —Kirkus
