"I love it, I love it! Fantastic, immensely readable." --Cosmopolitan
"Gloriously romantic" --Kirkus
"As individuals Kim Hendricks and Nicole Redon are exceptional; together, they sizzle. Set against the charm and glamor of Paris in the 1920's, The Last Romantics is a first-rate love story. I wanted it to go on forever." --Joyce Elbert
"I loved The Last Romantics! I read it in one sitting. Kim and Nicole are terrific characters--full of adventure and love--and their worlds in the glittering 1920's are vividly described. I wished it would never end." --Patricia Bosworth
"A big historical novel full of larger-than-life characters." 5-stars
Ruth Harris is "Brilliant.....trenchant, chic and ultra-sophisticated, a writer who has all the intellect of Mary McCarthy, all the insight of Joan Didion." --Fort Worth Star-Telegram
THE LAST ROMANTICS was originally published in hard cover by Simon and Schuster and in translated editions around the world.
From the Author
Ruth writes about strong, savvy, witty women who do their best to succeed and, when sometimes they don't get what they want, they find something even better along the way. Critics have compared Ruth to Nora Ephron and Joan Didion and called her books "brilliant," "steamy," "stylishly written," "richly plotted," "first-class entertainment" and "a sure thing."
It's no surprise Ruth is a writer. She grew up in a house filled with books, magazines and newspapers. Her Mom was an RN who had a trove of big-city hospital stories--some funny, some sad, some touching--and told them with great style. Her Dad loved words, word play and language and he is remembered by those who knew him as "always reading."
