WORDS: ZELDA FITZGERALD

[Image by CGM for Broho Style]

With all the current hype surrounding the Fitzgerald's, due mainly to the recent cinematic re-release of The Great Gatsby, I have a developed quite an interest in this 1920's power couple. I am fascinated by F.Scott's ability to remain a pop culture icon, even decades after his death, and, and am slowly learning from Therese Anne Fowler's latest book, Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald,  that his wife's story is no less intriguing,  

While I'm only about one third of the way through the novel, I am enchanted by the early life of Miss Zelda Sayre--a self-proclaimed southern tomboy who won the heart of the young, up and coming writer.  As you can see from the above quote, she was a tomboy long before it was socially appropriate to be a tomboy, and for that--I can't help but admire her.  Add a little bit of sass into the equation and you've got yourself a winning combination (at least in my eyes).  So take it in and stay tuned for a full book recommendation!
