Insight into an American Icon

Flapper by Joshua Zeitz

The 1920's has long been one of my favorite periods in history.  Even nearly a hundred years later, the decade oozes opulence and feminine mystique.  I love the fashions, the social and sexual revolution women went through, and of course, the music.

So when I saw Flapper by Joshua Zeitz, it's no wonder I was drawn to it straightaway.  Just as the title implies, the book focuses on describing how the iconic flapper impacted American culture.
