Z is for Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler. I’ve always loved stories about strong women. I’m not sure how I was lucky enough to be introduced to so many growing up (Anne Shirley, Elizabeth Bennett, my mom), but there’s something about reading about what goes on behind the scenes that I really love. It’s not about snooping … it’s about understanding. This take on Zelda’s life is just one in a long list of books about women who are much more instrumental than history has willingly shown. In short, Zelda is another woman who rocks.
What other titles have you read with strong historical heroines?
