Product Details

Praise

Praise for Violet and Daisy:

“Meticulously detailed…. This comprehensive biography also provides a healthy dose of social history, particularly as it relates to entertainment, gender roles, and disability.” –The Horn Book, starred review

“This engaging, linear narrative transcends spectacle to portray their storied career with sensitivity.”Publishers Weekly

“Violet and Daisy’s story shines.”–Kirkus

“Exploited stage darlings? Callous self-promoters? Sad vaudevillians with little to offer in the motion picture era? Miller wisely leaves readers to work out their own answers.” –The Bulletin

Praise for The Miracle & Tragedy of the Dionne Quintuplets:

“Throughout, Miller avoids a sensational tone, and her fresh and detailed reconstruction of this famous story is riveting — part tabloid story, part poignant biography.” —The New York Times Book Review

“[A] thorough, fascinating deep dive into the lives of five girls who captured the attention of millions” —Booklist, Starred Review

“Miller demonstrates herself once again to be a dab hand at examining a historic media frenzy and analyzing the legacy of its lore, leaving trails of ill-informed opinion and blame that lingers into the present.” —The Bulletin, Starred Review

“Fascinating and well-told. Miller negotiates the multiple viewpoints with a clear eye and extensive research.” —Voya, Starred Review

“International media darlings during the Great Depression, the Dionne sisters are virtually unknown to today’s young people, but Miller’s intense focus on what the girls were going through makes their story timeless.” —The Horn Book, Starred Review
