"This collection of essays looks at the question "What is history?" and how history is shaped in different socioeconomic contexts. The writers take a transdisciplinary approach, in the belief that everyone who deals with history constructs narratives of the past to make sense of the present as well as to determine their future courses of action"--

New York City, 1914. Suzanne and Jada. Entwined as sisters. Talented and resourceful. Black and white. Wealthy employer and devoted maid. Together, they realize Suzanne’s dream to see her name in lights on Broadway as she becomes the dazzling Ziegfeld Follies’ rising new star. But Jada’s superb voice and dance skills give her an unexpected shot at her own success—and her own life. And when a jealous Suzanne reveals a shattering secret, their friendship becomes a bitter rivalry. Floundering without Jada, Suzanne consoles herself with dashing suitors and champagne nights. Jada transforms into Harlem’s hottest nightclub sensation, complete with financial security and a promising new beau. But when Suzanne is plagued with increasingly dangerous “accidents,” and both women receive threatening notes, they discover just how cold and hard staying on top can be. Now in the face of relentless racism and vicious obsession, Suzanne and Jada make an uneasy alliance to find out the truth. And with the Follies’ lavish world in peril and their careers on the line, their pursuit of love, success, and equality could cost more than they ever dreamed. Set against a glittering background of vintage glamour, famous figures of the time and high-stakes, Ziegfeld Girls is an unforgettable novel of two extraordinary women seizing their own fates in a pivotal era. Praise for Sarah Barthel’s House of Silence “Barthel debuts with an original take on historical events and personages. Suspense blends with history. . . . Haunting and thought-provoking.” --RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars “An engaging, fast-paced blend of historical fiction and suspense.” –Shelf Awareness

"Kirsten Hoving's Joseph Cornell and Astronomy illuminates the art of Cornell in a remarkable new way. Combining her long-term grounding in Cornell's art and archives with her thorough knowledge of the popular astronomy that fascinated the artist, Hoving produces highly insightful readings of his works that ring true. Hoving's book is a major step in the process of recovering the popular science that surrounded twentieth-century artists and has been missing from the history of art for far too long. Her beautifully written and convincingly argued book will serve as an example for others to follow."--Linda Dalrymple Henderson, University of Texas, Austin "Although Cornell's art involving celestial motifs is known among art historians and critics, such work has received little critical attention. Hoving succeeds in tying Cornell's celestial work to specific astronomical and astrological concepts, and she unfolds for us the meanings of his boxes and collages. Hoving has impressively filled an important gap in Cornell scholarship."--Dickran Tashjian, author of A Boatload of Madmen: Surrealism and the American Avant-Garde, 1920-1950 "Joseph Cornell and Astronomy is an elegantly written book about Cornell's lifelong obsession with all things celestial. Scrupulously researched, Hoving's book places Cornell and his work at the intersection of some of the most exciting events of the twentieth century. By doing so, she casts a fresh eye on the work of this artist."--Stephanie L. Taylor, New Mexico State University
