More About Century Girl by Lauren Redniss
 
 
 
Overview
Lauren Redniss, acclaimed author of the brilliant biography-in-collage Radioactive, delivers a stunning visual journey through the life of the last Ziegfeld girl, Doris Eaton Travis. Now in paperback for the first time, Century Girl spans the brightest moments in early show business, the major historical landmarks of the 20th century, and the intimate milestones of one woman's long life. Incorporating hundreds of archival photos and personal clippings with inventive line drawings and a compelling, hand-written narrative, Century Girl is a more than a biography, more than a graphic novel, and more than an art book--it is a singularly original and major work of art that Slate magazine calls "a visually dazzling melange . . . unlike anything . . . ever seen before" (Best Books of 2006).
