Book Description: From a prizewinning, beloved young author, a provocative collection that explores the lives of colorful, intrepid women in history. “These stories linger in one’s memory long after reading them” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis). The fascinating characters in Megan Mayhew Bergman’s “collection of stories as beautiful and strange as the women who inspired them” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) are defined by their creative impulses, fierce independence, and sometimes reckless decisions. In “The Siege at Whale Cay,” cross-dressing Standard Oil heiress Joe Carstairs seduces Marlene Dietrich. In “A High-Grade Bitch Sits Down for Lunch,” aviator and writer Beryl Markham lives alone in Nairobi and engages in a battle of wills with a stallion. In “Hell-Diving Women,” the first integrated, all-girl swing band sparks a violent reaction in North Carolina. Other heroines, born in proximity to the spotlight, struggle to distinguish themselves: Lord Byron’s illegitimate daughter, Allegra; Oscar Wilde’s wild niece, Dolly; Edna St. Vincent Millay’s talented sister, Norma; James Joyce’s daughter, Lucia. Almost Famous Women offers an elegant and intimate look at artists who desired recognition. “By assiduously depicting their intimacy and power struggles, Bergman allows for a close examination of the multiplicity of women’s experiences” (The New York Times Book Review). The world wasn’t always kind to the women who star in these stories, but through Mayhew Bergman’s stunning imagination, they receive the attention they deserve. Almost Famous Women is “addictive and tantalizing, each story whetting our appetite for more” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution).

Book Description: Well before television and the internet, there were women who sought fame, flirted with infamy, and actively engaged with their fan base. In today's pop culture world, it can be hard to understand what the lives of these women were like. In their pre-suffrage world, women who attracted attention were considered scandalous and it was largely uncommon for women to become celebrities. Women who rose to fame in those times had to put up with societal standards for women on top of the lack of privacy and free speech. This book provides the details and context to let us know the women who captured America's heart in the 19th century. Rather than looking at influential women who strictly avoided notoriety, it covers the lives of 18 celebrities like Lydia Maria Child, Sojourner Truth, and Jane Addams.

Book Description: Famous women have had a place in history since the formation of the first civilization. They are few in number, some fictitious, like Helen of Troy, some notorious, like Cleopatra whose name and deeds are indelibly fixed in the historical record. In every century, indeed every generation, some few women rise to unmatched degrees of accomplishment and enjoy a general admiration. Their fame is the result of special qualities peculiar to themselves. In almost all cases beauty, or talent, or feminine verve, some significant gift, sets them apart from other women. It is the particular fascination of a unique individual that attracts and holds attention from all the others. In these recent times public adulation given to exceptional women is magnified by means of communication almost revolutionary in scope. All is known about them; all is observed, reported upon, judged and commented on. Their power in many sectors of public life is always remarkable and runs through the full range of human activity, from politics, to science, to the arts and to literature. In these pages twelve women are considered who have had a decisive impact on the times in which they lived. A lack of space in a book of brief compass like this does not allow for a consideration of female exemplars worldwide. In the western world, but a small fraction of earth's humanity, the twelve considered here have exerted influence that extends far beyond the parochial origins of their own lives.
