Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Reading progress update: I've read 156 out of 488 pages.

Flappers: Six Women of a Dangerous Generation - Judith Mackrell

This is good so far.  I've read the introductory bios of 4 of the 6 profiled andI'm mid-way through Zelda's.   As BrokenTune mentioned in her review, sex plays a big part, although I don't know how much of that is the author's choice of focus and how much of it is in these early days of the 20th century, sex was the most accessible weapon of equality women had.

 

What I hadn't expected was the popularity of drug use; alcohol is no surprise, but morphine and cocaine took me aback.

 

So far I'm not a fan of Zelda or Nancy (Cunard).
