Summary:
"In the early part of the twentieth century, New York City was a hotbed of creativity and scandal. Meet the women at the heart of it. They were poets, actresses, singers, artists, journalists, publishers, baronesses, and benefactresses. They were thinkers and they were drinkers. They eschewed the social conventions expected of them - to become wives and mothers - and decided to live on their own terms. In doing so, they became the voices of a new, fierce feminine spirit."--BOOK JACKET.
