Praise

“MacLane deserves canonization alongside Virginia Woolf and Emily Dickinson and Gertrude Stein.” —Emily Gould, author of And The Heart Says Whatever and Friendship

“One of the most fascinatingly self-involved personalities of the 20th century.”  The Age (2011)

“Mary MacLane comes off the page quivering with life. Moving.”  The London Times

“The first of the self-expressionists, and also the first of the Flappers.”  The Chicagoan

“Her first book was the first of the confessional diaries ever written in this country, and it was a sensation.”  The New York Times

“I know of no other writer who can play upon words so magically. Mary MacLane is one of the few who actually knows how to write English. She senses the infinite resilience, the drunken exuber- ance, the magnificent power & delicacy of the language.” —H.L. Mencken 

“A girl wonder.” —Harper’s Magazine 

“A pioneering newswoman and later a silent-screen star, consid- ered the veritable spirit of the iconoclastic Twenties.” —Boston Globe

“A milestone… Heartwarming, sensual and candid, I Await the Devil’s Coming offers reflections that likely were quite scandalous in their time and remain evocative and powerful today.” —California Bookwatch

“She was an extraordinarily gifted girl. . . She had a natural gift for crisp and concise expression, a keen, undisciplined intelligence and the emotional sensibility of a true artist.” New York Tribune 

“A pioneering feminist. . . A sensation.” —Feminist Bookstore News
