In this dazzling comprehensive biography of Louise Bryant, Mary V. Dearborn connects a constitutionally unconventional woman to an era of stunning transformations.

Queen of Bohemia finally sets the record straight, bringing to exhilarating life the motivations and passions behind one of the century's most endearing radicals.
