BOBBED HAIR AND BATHTUB GIN Writers Running Wild in the Twenties

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lorna Raver

Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

In this extraordinarily intriguing production, beautifully read by Lorna Raver, a certain melancholy underlies the antics and accomplishments of Dorothy Parker, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Zelda Fitzgerald, and Edna Ferber, all talented writers of the 1920s. Raver’s sensitivity and insight into four very different artistic women broadens our knowledge and understanding of them. Her lyrical reading of Meade’s description of autumn in New York City subtly suggests the early autumn to come in their personal lives and careers as well. Aptly sub-titled “Writers Running Wild in the Twenties,” Meade’s biography reveals both the commonality and separateness of four driven and sometimes reckless women: their lives, the people they loved, and those who did and did not love them back.
