Customer Review

on 22 June 2013
I loved that the book was written from the perspective of Zelda Fitzgerald and showed the societal barriers to women having a creative life in their own right. It was chilling to read that her ambitions as a dancer were blamed for her mental distress rather than the fact that she was offered an amazing opportunity to be a lead ballerina and had to turn it down because of jealous opposition from her husband. She was prepared to defy him but could have lost her daughter because of the law which favoured the father in the event of disputes over custody and even access. I felt it was a thoughtful as well as exciting book. It also showed the tragedy of creative lives ruined by alcohol addiction.
