    Description

    Glamorised, mythologised, and demonised - the women of the 1920s were determined to reinvent the way they lived.

    Flappers focuses on six women who between them exemplified the range and daring of that generation’s spirit. Diana Cooper, Nancy Cunard, Tallulah Bankhead, Zelda Fitzgerald, Josephine Baker and Tamara de Lempicka were far from typical flappers.

    Talented, reckless, and wilful, with personalities that transcended their class and background, they rewrote their destinies in remarkable, entertaining and tragic ways.

    Sheds light on otherwise forgotten women in histor

    Where does Flappers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great audiobook for those interested in women's history, the progression of sexuality in 1920s America, the context for literature/film that was being produced at the time, and for those looking to get to know icons of American glamour, style, and fashion. The section on Josephine Baker is especially inspiring and eye-opening.

    What does Julia Franklin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Julia Franklin's clarity of voice is exceptional and passively lures the reader back into the old world.

    If you could give Flappers a new subtitle, what would it be?

    "1920s Icons of Sexuality, Glamour, and Fame"

    Any additional comments?

    Great read/listen for historical context of 1920s pop culture!
