Praise

Buffalo News
“You’ll find some of the best poetry and prose of Vanity Fair’s first incarnation in this wildly stellar anthology of essays, interviews, poems, journalism and whatnot (lots of whatnot) from the “Bible of the Smart Set” 1913-1926.”

Publishers Weekly (starred):
“This volume epitomizes the idea of modernity in American cultural life before the Second World War.”

Kirkus Reviews:
“A remarkable range to the pieces….Whether read from cover to cover or dipped into occasionally, this collection serves as a fine primer to one magazine’s contribution to a golden age of American magazine writing.”

Library Journal:
“Reading this compilation of writings published in Vanity Fair from the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s is like sampling a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day: a delicious confection of satire, poetry, biographical sketches, humorous pieces, and thought-provoking commentary.”

Booklist:
“These delightful period pieces reflecting the social mores of their time hold up in their innovation, style, and concern about modern life nearly a century later.”
