Where All Good Flappers Go : Essential Stories of the Jazz Age by David M. Earle
Petite trade paperback.
A sparkling new collection of "flapper fiction" stories featuring the iconic women who defined the Jazz Age
Edited and introduced by David M. Earle
Vivacious, charming, irreverent, the flapper is a girl who knows how to have a roaring good time.
In this collection of short stories, she's a partygoer, a socialite, a student, a shopgirl, and an acrobat. She bobs her hair, shortens her skirt, searches for a husband and scandalises her mother. She's a glittering object of delight, and a woman embracing a newfound independence.
Bringing together stories from widely adored writers and newly discovered gems, principally sourced from the magazines of the period, this collection is a celebration of the outrageous charm of an iconic figure of the Jazz Age.

- Zelda Fitzgerald "What Became of the Flapper"
- Dana Ames "The Clever Little Fool"

"I believe in the flapper as an artist in her particular field, the art of being - being young, being lovely." -- Zelda Fitzgerald
