Review of The Show Girl: A Novel


I really enjoyed the book Montauk, by this author, so I was looking forward to reading this one. This was another interesting book. The story takes place in the late 1920’s and we follow Olive as she becomes a famous showgirl in the Ziegfeld Follies and through her relationship with Archie Carmichael. I really enjoyed reading more about this time period and Olive’s persistence in fighting for her independence as a young single woman and believing her ideas and dreams have merit. This book is well researched and well written. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
