Earlier this year, I had read and enjoyed Marion Meade's biography of Buster Keaton. And so, I figured I would give her new book a try. I just finished reading Bobbed Hair and Bathtub Gin: Writers Running Wild in the Twenties, Meade's group portrait of four Jazz Age writers - Dorothy Parker, Zelda Fitzgerald, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Edna Ferber. I liked this book a good deal, though at times, I found the interwoven stories of the four writer's loves, lives, and literary endeavors a little jumbled.
