Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The term jazz baby, to me, represents the 1920's. A decade that may be overly glamorized--as any glance at the past often is. But that particular era produced many firsts that soon became staples of the American way of life. Our very culture. Easily availability of the automobile. Radio. Phonograph records. Movie theaters with their larger-than-life stars. These pastimes we now take for granted were brand new to the roaring twenties. As were speakeasies, flapper girls, and a common popular music.
 
History saw fit to label it the Jazz Age, a carefree time of newfound freedoms and youthful exuberance. Everything changed in that decade. And if you weren't young, one of those fearless babies, you got left behind, forgotten, like the shrugged-off Victorian ideals of previous generations. Emily Ann is the living embodiment of that change. All things are new to her.
 
In the opening chapter of Jazz Baby, we see a battle beginning to play. Eunice Spatch and her male companion represent the old guard, the ones who have followed a well-worn path through the familiar. Things are done a certain way--we don't deviate. But Emily Ann, she's the jazz baby in the back seat, telling those two upfront that things have changed, women have the vote now. There's a new rule book that needs to be studied.

About the Author

After spending time in Florida and Georgia, Beem Weeks has settled in Michigan for a spell. A pop-culture trivia buff, he counts among his passions very loud music, indie films, and a well-told story. He has written several short fiction pieces, but Jazz Baby is his first novel.
